COVID-19: Implications for Healthy Food Access and Security
April 22, 2020 | 2:00 - 3:00 pm Eastern
The COVID-19 epidemic has put a strain on many social supports, not least of which is the food system and safety net. Reliable access to healthy food, a challenging proposition in the best of times, has become a major issue facing more and more communities across the country. On this webinar, participants discussed the critical challenges the food system is facing; how the food safety net is responding; and how grantmakers can help with immediate needs, the eventual recovery, and beyond. Speakers included Dara Hessee of The Colorado Health Foundation and Gita Rampersad of Feeding America.
