The coronavirus outbreak is making it harder for Latino and other families to get enough food to feed their families, a condition also called food insecurity.
Families that rely on food assistance can’t stock up, or shop online, either.
Let’s use #SaludTues on Tuesday, April 21, 2020, to discuss how to improve food access and mitigate food insecurity for Latinos and all people during the COVID-19 pandemic!
