I want to thank Deputy Under Secretary Dean for being with us today. The COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic has caused an unprecedented number of children across the country to go hungry. Widespread school closures, combined with the economic crisis created a nightmare scenario in which hunger among children and families surged to unprecedented levels. [...] I look forward to discussing these issues and the work we have ahead to make sure that all children in this country can access the healthy foods they need to thrive."
