Rural Health and Nutrition
Due to the global pandemic, the food industry experienced a new struggle. Restaurant, business, and school closures threatened the U.S. economy and the integrity of the food system. The dichotomy of surplus and unavailability of produce, meat, and dairy created an unprecedented opportunity to give individuals disproportionately impacted COVID-19 access to food. The Food Distribution Action Plan's development focused on the safety of the attendees and volunteers with COVID-19 precautions like social distancing in mind.
