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?
