Library

The REFINE Library is a collection of resources relating to food-supported interventions, including peer-reviewed journal articles, published reports or reviews, case studies, and organisational documents. These resources are tagged according to the subject matter they cover. If relevant to more than one category the document appears in both categories. New resources are added regularly according to search criteria and standards developed by REFINE.

Please send suggestions for additions to this library to REFINEnutrition@gmail.com
