Over 50 million Americans will experience food insecurity, including 17 million children, as it continues to rise as a result of Covid-19, a level of hunger not seen in the nation since the Great Depression.
What has the last four years of administration meant for the US food system? How should government address the growing the levels of hunger? Our panel of policy makers, think tanks and academics will explore the key challenges and socio, economic and political solutions that are needed to move forward from the far-reaching impact of the pandemic across every aspect of its food system.
