There have been five million confirmed COVID-19 cases in the United States (U.S.), and around 160,000 deaths due to the virus. More than 50 million Americans have filed for unemployment since the start of the pandemic. And with frequent images in the media of long lines of people and cars waiting to receive free food – some for the first time in their lives – the number of food-insecure people in the U.S. is expected to climb from 37 million to more than 54 million.
In addition, the disproportionate spread of COVID-19 in communities of colour and the death of Black men and women at the hands of police have drawn into sharp focus the systemic racism present in the U.S. food system. COVID-19 has exacerbated the inequities in the U.S. food system that communities of colour have faced for many years.
