COVID-19 and Climate: Implications for our Food System
August 09, 2020

August 2020

Will COVID-19 change our food system for good? Increased coronavirus outbreaks in food markets, food plants, and farmworker communities have impacted food access and put a spotlight on food insecurity. Farmers are hurting as supply chains for fresh, perishable foods shrivel. Meanwhile, food banks have seen a surge in demand that has required distribution support from the National Guard.

What does COVID-19 mean for agriculture, our food supply systems — and our diets? Join us for a conversation with Lisa Held, senior reporter at Civil Eats and Karen Ross, secretary of the California Department of Food and Agriculture, on feeding a nation under quarantine.
