The spread of COVID-19, and
the public responses and
policies it has engendered, have
interrupted some food availability
and prompted concerns among
consumers about the reliability of
the food supply chain. Some farm
producers have faced plummeting
prices, while some prices,
especially at retail, have spiked.
We seek to explain what has
been happening within the food
supply chain and what is likely to
happen as society deals with the
pandemic and its aftermath.
