Chef José Andrés: What We Can Learn From The Pandemic


We've all learned a great deal over the past eight months, and there has been a sharp learning curve in one area in particular: hunger. As Chef José Andrés explains in yesterday's editorial, this is an area where improvements are far overdue.

Andrés points out that our medical system wasn't truly modernized until after the 1914 epidemic, when it became clear that the old system wasn't up to the changing needs of the nation. In order to tackle our bigger food crisis, the same comprehensive overhaul is needed, he argues: "We need to think even bigger," Andrés says. "We need food policy action across the federal government, including the departments of agriculture, state, labor and education."

As a leader in the movement for greater food access, Andrés has a lot to say on the subject. Read his compelling new thinkpiece, brought to you by the people at the Washington Post.
