There's always been more to farming than soil and seeds--supply chain partnerships are key--“Do you have trucks? Do you have food? Do you have refrigerator space? Do you have volunteers?”

In response to a food chain left broken by the coronavirus pandemic, a group of 25 organizations including restaurants, food pantries, and farms are working to keep restaurant workers employed, food pantries stocked, and people fed.
