Colorado Law Talk: 'The Roles and Rights of Essential Food System Workers During COVID-19'
The global spread of COVID-19 exposed many vulnerabilities in our food system. While some consumers experienced food shortages, others felt heightened levels of food insecurity. And yet, as federal, state and local programs were re-worked and legislation passed to keep our food supplies intact, less attention has focused on the role of the essential food system workers (the farmers and food processors, among others) who have kept us fed. In this talk, Professor Alexia Brunet Marks will combine stories of essential workers with necessary reforms, driven by her work on the Colorado COVID Food Systems Rapid Response Team.
