“This pandemic can be dealt best with local actions, interrupting chains of transmission, supported of course by the public health services, hospitals, and the whole of government.”
“Disruption to food supply chains from COVID 19 is catastrophic to many independent businesses, from farmers who sell direct to restaurants to food distributors who sell to institutions,” Miller says.
“The way the system is structured, large companies are positioned to knock out independent businesses that serve our local farmers, rural towns, and small cities and accelerate reduced resilience in the system. Now more than ever, we need a reasoned approach, based on data, to fairly distribute food and federal aid.”
We are building a diverse team of partners focused on advancing this effort, and we need your help, too.
“Our focus is on safely getting food to families while reducing the viral spread and supporting our local economy, I knew when we started this would not be easy and could very well be one of the most challenging problems we’ve ever tackled.”
