Fighting Food Insecurity During COVID-19 and Beyond: Key Updates for County Leaders

Fri. 5 Feb, 2021 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a drastic increase in household food insecurity in the United States. As vulnerable children and families have faced new obstacles in accessing consistent, healthy meals, counties have played a critical role in providing food and nutrition assistance in cooperation with community stakeholders and our partners in state and federal government. Bolstering these efforts, the latest COVID-19 relief package provides significant new resources and flexibilities for federal nutrition programs. During this Webinar Congressional staff, county leaders, and national experts will discuss how emergency COVID-19 legislation can help counties combat food insecurity and the implications it may have for national anti-hunger policy moving forward.
