COVID-19 and Small and Mid-Sized Meat Processors: Exploring the Challenges, Solutions, and a Path Forward
While COVID-19 has disrupted and exposed the vulnerability of large industrial meat processors, it has also highlighted new and longstanding challenges faced by small and mid-sized processors. Within this context, solutions are emerging that address the challenges in the short term and offer a path forward towards lasting change. Join Jessica Roosa from This Old Farm, Rebecca Thistlethwaite from Niche Meat Processor Assistance Network, and Kelly Nuckolls from National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition for a conversation to explore the impact that COVID-19 is having on small and medium sized meat processors, how they're adapting to these challenges, and the changes underway to alleviate pressure and ensure lasting change.
This call will be hosted by the Wallace Center on Wednesday, May 13 at 1pm Eastern.
