Improving Food and Nutrition Security During COVID-19 and the Economic Recovery – Sep 13
Posted by Bipartisan Policy Center on September 7, 2021
The public health and economic challenges caused by COVID-19 exacerbated inequities in food and nutrition security. Lack of access to affordable, nutritious foods and poor diet quality can have profound impacts on health outcomes, health care costs, productivity, and our children’s ability to learn and grow. While temporary flexibilities and benefit increases for programs, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and school meal programs, have helped, many will end soon, leaving the long-term challenges of food and nutrition insecurity unaddressed. To address these issues, the Bipartisan Policy Center convened a Task Force comprised of 19 distinguished public and private sector leaders. On September 13, the Food and Nutrition Security Task Force will release the first of three policy briefs, focused on federal policy recommendations to improve food and nutrition security during COVID-19 and the economic recovery.
This event will take place on Monday, September 13, 1:00-2:15 p.m. EST.
