Abstract:

Food Security and nutrition progress has been slow or reversed globally. The demand for food systems is increasing due to population, income, technology, and climate change. Since the dawn of time, plagues have devastated humans. Pandemics all have a catastrophic effect on the global economy. A study found that COVID-19 has a ripple effect throughout the food supply chain, from farm to table. Food production, processing, distribution, and demand are increasingly major concerns due to recent supply chain issues. Food supply chain financial challenges due to COVID-19 restrictions on worker movement and consumer demand. Governments should therefore promote worker and agricultural product migration. Small farmers and the poor should also be financially assisted. To ensure employee health and safety, facilities must adapt to changing working conditions. Anti-price protectionist policies must be avoided. As the virus spreads, countries must adjust their policies accordingly. Flexible enough to respond to food supply chain challenges. This analysis will study food grain availability in India, assess the impact of COVID-19 on agriculture and food, and outline measures to mitigate the pandemic's impact.
