Food is the essence of life. In the COVID-19 crisis, preserving access to safe and nutritious food year-round is an essential part of the response to the pandemic, particularly for the poor and vulnerable communities hit hardest. Through our work, USAID Advancing Nutrition highlights the critical role of healthy food in community health, sustainable food systems, and nutrition in humanitarian contexts.
