The COVID-19 pandemic has introduced extraordinary shocks to our food system, impacting access and affordability across the supply chain. The disruption poses new challenges to families working to put food on the table, with certain communities disproportionately feeling the effects.

This conversation will focus on strategies for creating and sustaining reliable food access.
