Impacts of COVID-19 on the food sector are among its most visible and important economic consequences of the pandemic. Effects driven by a sudden shift to food at home due to social distancing measures, as well as by risks of food shortages have led producers to connect directly with consumers via hyper-local markets.    

 

Producers have done an incredible job in terms of implementing policies and procedures to make sure markets are as safe as possible. They’ve transformed markets into one of the safest places to shop for your groceries... But those efforts, such as expanded staff training, protective equipment, or new software for online ordering, "don’t come without cost," according to the Food & Environment Reporting Network.    

Speakers include leaders from Edible South Florida, Bee Heaven Farm, Accursio and Sons Farms, Miami-Dade County Public Schools, South Dade Chamber of Commerce, The Beacon Council and Threefold Cafe.   

 

This discussion is designed to connect producers with decision makers who can provide insights to grow their agribusinesses.

The Dade County Farm Bureau is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability. We aim to adhere as closely as possible to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0, Level AA), published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). These guidelines explain how to make Web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly to everyone. Whilst The Dade County Farm Bureau strives to adhere to the guidelines and standards for accessibility, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website and we are currently working to achieve this. Be aware that due to the dynamic nature of the website, minor issues may occasionally occur as it is updated regularly. We are continually seeking out solutions that will bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall web accessibility.
