The pandemic has affected all aspects of our daily lives, which has changed how many Americans get their food. With this increased reliance on the retail food supply, we continue to focus our efforts on ensuring continuity for our members, the protection of our essential workers and keeping the global supply chain moving.

As the nation continues to fight this battle against the coronavirus pandemic, FMI compiled a set of policy priorities that we believe will help keep our shelves stocked, protect our workers and help ensure the safety of our customers.
