The news of COVID-19’s impact on farmers, chefs, food service workers, and people who are food insecure around the world has been devastating. Food Tank President Danielle Nierenberg shares why she sees hope in the food system this week.
“There’s no shortage of food. That has never been the case in America- we have so much food. We can throw most of it – almost all of it- away, and still have enough food to feed everybody. It’s just a distribution issue.”
At South by Southwest, Food Tank’s panel featuring Haile Thomas, The HAPPY Org; Tony Hillery, Harlem Grown; and Regina Anderson, Food Recovery Network discussed the key to a better future food system: leaders of the future.
