The food supply chain—all that happens from farm to fork—is complex and the pandemic is affecting it: farm and factory workers in some sectors have come under short supply, markets have been disrupted by scarcities or overstocks. How does this affect our collective food security? Are some groups more vulnerable than others? This webinar will deconstruct and explain the food supply chain from both domestic and global angles, examine the current shocks and responses to those disruptions, and identify how populations with special needs can be supported.
