Local Food System Response to COVID Resource Hub

In collaboration with 3 research universities and 16 partner organizations across the sector, AMS built a resource hub to share insights, innovations, and tools to help local and regional food producers and businesses adapt to COVID-related market shifts.

The Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) administers programs that create domestic and international marketing opportunities for U.S. producers of food, fiber, and specialty crops. AMS also provides the agriculture industry with valuable services to ensure the quality and availability of wholesome food for consumers across the country and around the world.
