The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on food insecurity
This research commentary reviews the current impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on food insecurity. We explore the impact of the pandemic on existing programs and evaluate how these programs adapted under these unprecedented circumstances. Moreover, we explore currently undertaken, favorable strategies for successfully addressing food insecurity during the pandemic. These initiatives include a nonprofit-retail industry partnership and programmatic strategies implemented by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). In an effort to bring awareness to addressing this important public health issue, we note the need to document these strategies and determine the most effective solutions to combat food insecurity in a vulnerable population.
