How did food banks and food pantries cope with the COVID-19 pandemic impact on food insecurity in the US?
We conducted a study, in partnership with WhyHunger.org, to explore the experiences of private, charitable non-profit hunger relief organizations who were on the front lines of food assistance, ensuring people who were in need got access to food during the most worrisome months of the pandemic. This research sampled the experiences and activities of these HROs across the U.S. from June through September 2020.
A significant portion of our work focuses on our home state of North Carolina. Our North Carolina podcast series features farmers, researchers, community leaders and visionaries working to shape, protect, and support our food system.
