IEDC Webinar: From Farmers to Grocers to Servers, Food Systems Are Changing
June 25/3:00 pm - 4:30 pm UTC-4.5
COVID-19 has disrupted food supply chains in America and around the globe. As schools, restaurants, and other major consumers of food products closed, demand dried up, leaving farmers with excess crops. At the same time, food banks around the U.S. saw more clients as unemployment soared. These circumstances have reverberating effects on the restaurant, agriculture, and grocery store industries. In some way, food instability impacts every community. In this webinar, we will consider how economic developers can address food issues in their own communities and what to anticipate as supply chains return.
