The food and home goods publisher Food52 laid off 21 employees Thursday evening, a figure that represents about 15% of its total staff, the publisher confirmed to Adweek.

The cuts primarily affected the editorial team, which has been thinned to a headcount of 15. The remaining editorial staff, as well as part of its creative team, have been reduced to 32-hour workweeks. They will continue to receive full-time benefits.

The cuts come on the heels of an earlier round of layoffs, in April, when the publisher eliminated 20 positions and attributed the decision to an internal reorganization.
