Last week, the Arrell Food Institute at the University of Guelph hosted a webinar on food security’s intersection with COVID-19.

“Before COVID-19 arrived on the scene, food security was already an issue in our communities and around the world,” the Arrell Food Institute shares on their website. “How has the pandemic exacerbated this problem, and where do we go next to address them both?”

You can now view a recording of the webinar on YouTube to hear from the featured speakers:

  • Gwen Chapman, Dean, College of Social & Applied Human Sciences (moderator)
  • Leticia Deawuo, Director, Black Creek Community Farm
  • Elizabeth Finnis, Associate Professor and Chair, Department of Sociology & Anthropology
  • Robert Friendship, Professor, Department of Population Medicine
  • Arvinder Pannu, MSc Candidate, Capacity Development and Extension Program
