21 Oct Presenting our series: Food Forward
In March 2020, COVID-19 struck the United States and most of the world. While we were in quarantine and trying to figure out what was next, we saw countless people losing their jobs and businesses struggling to stay open.
Amidst the hardships, we also began to see small businesses adapt with innovative ways to not only survive, but also help their communities. In a time when everyone was supposed to be physically apart, they used their resources to bring people together.
In our series Food Forward, we focus on 3 different parts of the food supply chain and how they found a way to persevere.
The Farm: Facing interruptions in the food supply chain and a massive loss in revenue, the staff at Lively Run Goat Dairy in Interlaken, NY found creative solutions to forge onward while supporting their community in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Sea: Lobstermen in Fairhaven, MA had an excess of lobsters as restaurants closed at the start of the pandemic. The fishers had to determine a new way to sell their catch and save their age-old livelihood with their group South Coast Direct Source Seafood.
The Plate: When COVID-19 took over New York City, restaurants had to pivot in order to keep their doors open. We follow three restaurateurs in Brooklyn; Cheryl’s Global Soul, Baoburg and Della; as they learn to move forward.
This series would not have been possible to all of the businesses involved and the people behind them. When there were so many unknowns, they found a way to not only move forward and help their communities.
