COVID-19 has devastated the US economy, disrupted the nation’s food supply chains, significantly affected federal and state safety-net programs for low-income households, and catastrophically damaged the financial well-being of tens of millions of families. These impacts are disproportionately disrupting the lives and incomes of the most vulnerable populations — perhaps especially children, single-parent households, the elderly, and the homeless — leading to increasingly widespread concerns about rising food insecurity, hunger, and malnutrition for those populations.
Diane Schanzenbach, Scott Winship, Angela Rachidi, and Joseph Glauber join Vincent Smith, director of agricultural studies at AEI, to discuss the food supply and food insecurity issues created by COVID-19 and current and potential policy responses to address the critically important challenges that the nation faces.
This audio first appeared at an AEI event held on May 4, 2020, at AEI’s headquarters in Washington, DC.
