Covid-19 and our Local Food System: How do we Respond?
Virtual Panel | Covid-19 and our Local Food System: How do we Respond?
Join our panelists for a virtual discussion on how Covid-19 has impacted our local food system. How have local food producers responded and inspired change, and do we have reasons for hope?
The UAMA and Center for Regional Food Studies co-present this panel – part of the Foodways Wednesdays series hosted by the nonprofit Tucson City of Gastronomy – to explore how COVID-19 has changed our local food system. Panelists will discuss the impacts of the pandemic, ways that local food producers have responded and inspired change, and whether we have reasons to be hopeful for the future.
