As COVID-19 has spread throughout the United States, it has reduced domestic economic activity and disrupted domestic and international supply chains for goods and services, including food and agricultural products. These disruptions have produced an immediate and very strong demand shock on the U.S. food supply chain. This book looks at current agricultural and food issues including: appropriations, trade, disaster assistance, food safety and security and loan programs.
