Recent events, such as the COVID-19 pandemic and protests over the systemic racism that remains rampant in our country, have transformed the public conversation about U.S. food systems and health equity. It can even seem that 2019 was so long ago–a completely different era. However, it goes without saying, these recent events did not create the inequities present in our food supply today, but merely shined a light on them. And, in 2019, PHA was already diligently at work to better address these challenges.

In 2019, we amassed a large body of research and data around who our food supply is failing: most notably, economically disadvantaged communities and communities of color.
