FOOD SECURITY - Organizations, Networks, and Supply in COVID-19
Summer 2020 - Food Security Committee
Food access and supply is a concern for all people. For most, social distancing protocol can occur, and special care can be made in the visit to the local grocery store. However, for the vulnerable in society food access is an issue that is more challenging during this time. Of the vulnerable, there are two distinct tiers of people who need food assistance during the time of COVID-19:
Those who are having affordability issues and cannot afford food and are going hungry
Those who are having trouble accessing supplies but can afford their food, such as the elderly or those with a compromised immune system.
