ABSTRACT

Improving Food and Nutrition Security During COVID-19, the Economic Recovery, and Beyond   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Executive Summary: "The COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic has had a significantly adverse impact on food and nutrition security, though this was mitigated by increased support for federal food and nutrition programs. Poverty increased as businesses closed and families experienced job losses. Access, availability, and affordability of nutritious foods has been challenging given consumer financial constraints and supply chain disruptions. [...] This brief is the first in a series of three by the Bipartisan Policy Center's Food and Nutrition Security Task Force and provides recommendations for bipartisan, consensus-based recommendations for improving food and nutrition security during COVID-19 and the economic recovery. Implementation of the policy recommendations in this brief can also support food and nutrition security during future public health emergencies, economic downturns, and recessions. [...] The Bipartisan Policy Center's Food and Nutrition Security Task Force makes [...] nine high-level policy recommendations to improve food and nutrition security in response to COVID-19 and the economic recovery[.]"
