COVID-19 & the Food & Farming System: A Tele-Town Hall on Building Resilience During Crisis

COVID-19 has exposed the fragility of our state’s food and farming system, while highlighting the essential role that local farms, food banks, schools and food chain laborers play in times of need. What are policymakers doing to try to feed those in need and ensure that those growing, harvesting, and serving our food are safe and supported? Join us for a discussion with Karen Ross, Secretary of the California Department of Food & Agriculture, Kim Frinzell, Director of Nutrition Services at the California Department of Education, Assemblymember Buffy Wicks, and Senator Anna Caballero. Moderated by Jassy Grewal with United Food and Commercial Workers – Western States Council.
