Technical Platform on the Measurement and Reduction of Food Loss and Waste

Webinar : The Impact of COVID-19 on the Food Supply & Feeding the Hungry

Hybrid Event, 29/04/2020

The recovery of excess food to sustain the food-insecure population in the U.S. is a critical concern during the COVID-19 pandemic. Food rescue organizations and food waste experts are focused on assessing the short-term and potential long-term impacts, including:

  • How will the pandemic affect food supply chains? What would be the effects of disruptions in supply chains?
  • How can we ensure that excess food gets to the people who need it most?
  • How will an increase in public demand for food impact the availability of excess food for rescue organizations?  
    • How are food banks and agencies that deliver meals to homebound people handling this situation?
    • How are they adapting in order to continue to feed hungry people?
    • How are they implementing new safety standards?
    • How do they continue to combat hunger as unemployment rises and needs escalate?

The webinar takes place on Wednesday, April 29, 2020 at 02:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time
