Responding to Food System Disruptions: Lessons Learned from a Global Coronavirus Food Safety Task Force
During the pandemic’s first year, a global task force of food safety experts was created using a “train the trainer” approach to provide risk mitigation outreach for the food system workforce in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Kenya, Nepal, and Senegal. Through live, online office hours and downloadable, translated resources, the team countered misinformation and shared best practices to keep food businesses open. The global food system continues to face challenges from conflict, climate change, and other disruptions. This webinar, hosted by the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Food Safety, will explore best practices for responding to food safety challenges and lessons learned by the coronavirus task force.
