Despite challenges like shuttered farmers’ markets and restaurants, a shortage of meat processors, and the scramble to move sales online, food producers selling into local and regional markets have demonstrated real resilience during COVID-19. In this panel, we’ll explore how the pandemic has affected regional food systems in different areas around the country and what that means for the future. Featuring: James Beard Leadership Award Winner and Executive Director Cornelius Blanding, The Federation of Southern Cooperatives; Executive Director Dena Leibman, Future Harvest; CEO/Farmer/Co-Owner Lindsey Lusher Shute, Farm Generations and Hearty Roots Community Farm; Farmer/Co-Owner/Manager Wendy Johnson, Jóia Food Farm and Center View Farms; and moderated by Senior Policy Reporter Lisa Elaine Held, Civil Eats.
