Local and Regional Food Systems Response to COVID Webinar: Innovations in State Policy and Implications for Local and Regional Food Sectors

January 25, 2021 @ 1:00 pm 2:00 pm

This program is part of a webinar series created by the “Local Food Systems Response to Covid: Building Better Beyond” resource hub.

Register for this webinar and learn more about the series HERE.

The Goals of the Hub/Project are

  1. Foster cross sector learning and collaboration across Local and Regional Food Systems (LRFS) sectors.
  2. Capture emergent strategies and innovations addressing COVID-19 shocks from LRFS stakeholders and translate those insights into readily accessible resources and educational materials.
  3. Assess short, mid, and/or long-term economic impacts and shifts in consumer purchasing patterns, knowledge, or other perceptions relative to LRFS as motivated by the COVID-19 crisis.
  4. Investigate systematic or structural shifts within LRFS resulting from COVID-19 disruptions, and leverage research insights to support their long-term success and resilience in a post-COVID-19 world.
  5. Empower and strengthen the visibility of Community of Practice Coordinating Organizations (COPCOs) as technical assistance providers to their sector.
  6. Increase communications and interactions between on-the-ground practitioners and AMS staff when providing technical assistance to practitioners.
