Vermont’s food system is critical to our economy, state identity, and quality of life, with over 64,000 Vermonters employed by farms and food related businesses. The arrival of COVID-19 rattled the food system, amplifying weaknesses in our globalized food system while inspiring Vermonters to creatively build new tools for community food security. This discussion will focus on the impact COVID-19 has had on Vermont’s food system, assess disparities in this system, and identify lessons we take forward for a more prepared and resilient food system in the future.

Panelists:

Anore Horton, Executive Director of Hunger Free Vermont

Brittany Sperber, Operations Manager for ShiftMeals & The Skinny Pancake

Grace Oedel, Executive Director of NOFA-Vermont

Facilitated by:
