COVID and Food Insecurity:
Preventing a Global Pandemic from becoming a Food Pandemic


​Relationship Building in Community Development

12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT
  8:00 am - 9:30 am CDT
COVID-19 has dramatically affected the way we live. For many people all over the world, the impact simply does not stop at work or the ability to see people but on the spillover impacts of the economic impact, including a rise in hunger. Even before the virus, a population more than twice the size of the United States went to bed hungry. As COVID hits the most vulnerable economies, the impact of the pandemic translates into poverty as millions of people’s sources of income fall due to job losses. But if governments and businesses take action now, they can prevent the COVID-19 pandemic from becoming a hunger pandemic.   Forming and maintaining relationships are crucial to effectively carrying out community and international development programs and projects. Relationships between development organization participants/communities and staff members allow both parties to further their project goals. Additionally, relationships between staff members from diverse backgrounds and cultures allow for increased project collaboration and improved service delivery to clients. Important as well are inter-organizational relationships so that organizations serving similar populations with different areas of expertise can best collaborate and share knowledge, pooling together resources and experience to optimize client experience.
