Should Americans Prepare for Meat Shortages? | Tom Vilsack on US Food Supply Chain | GZERO World

Former Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack joins GZERO World to discuss the food supply chain crisis and why it's so hard to get meat processing up and running at full capacity right now. But he assures us that there won't likely be a noticeable shortage for consumers. A bigger concern, he says, is addressing growing food insecurity among the unemployed and poor families badly impacted by the pandemic. He recommends expanding access to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) for more Americans to offset the crisis, and so more unemployed workers will be able to buy food.
