NMSU researchers explore food insecurity amid COVID-19

LAS CRUCES – It’s been two years since the coronavirus pandemic swept through and changed the lives of millions of people across the country. For many people, one severe effect is the lack of reliable daily access to food. A group of researchers at New Mexico State University collaborated to collect important data and discover the factors that led to food insecurity amid COVID-19, while developing large-scale recovery strategies for companies in the future.

NMSU faculty, Donovan Fuqua, Barry Brewer, Victor Pimentel and Faruk Arslan in the School of Business bring together expertise in logistics, management, supply chains, and transportation. The group started this project about a year ago, after seeing the many challenges that COVID-19 has brought about – especially access to food. The business is part of the newly created Supply Chain Entrepreneurship Center led by Brewer and Carlo Mora.
