Screen Shot 2019-04-09 at 5.29.43 PM

Of the many groups facing unique challenges during this COVID-19 pandemic, one in particular is the food-insecure population. The recovery of excess food to sustain these at-risk people is more important than ever. 

This esteemed group will discuss both short- and long-term effects of the current crisis and address questions including:

  • How is the pandemic affecting food supply chains?
  • How can we ensure excess food gets to the people who need it most?
  • How are food banks and agencies that deliver meals to the homebound handling this situation? And how are they implementing new safety standards?
  • How can these organizations—and others who want to get involved—continue to combat hunger as unemployment rises and needs escalate?
