Hacking world hunger during the coronavirus pandemic

With the global spread of COVID-19, more than 130 million are expected to be on the edge of starvation.


Global hunger is one of the most dangerous side effects of the coronavirus pandemic. Some of the most vulnerable to hunger live in the world’s richest cities, or work in the industries that feed us. In this episode, The Take explores the global food chain’s weak links and how some are innovating to help keep people fed.
