This Working Group aims to transform COVID-19 research on food security. Little research has been done in the U.S. on disaster disruption to the local food environment. Existing assessments miss important features of the food environment created by disaster disruptions. This working group will coordinate to align measures across COVID-19 studies, partner on analyses, and disseminate recommendations for food environment assessment post-disruption.
