Food, Groceries, & Nutrition
No Shortage of Food
There is no shortage of food, however due to the way that people are shopping during this COVID-19 pandemic, the supply chain is behind the demand. If everyone shops in the normal way that they would typically provide for their family, the grocery stores would be well stocked with what you need.
