In March 24th's press briefing, Governor Parson assured Missourian's that the state's food supply remains strong and emphasized the important role of the food and agriculture industry in Missouri's COVID-19 response efforts.
"Missouri's food supply is as strong as the men and women who drive our trucks and tractors," Governor Parson said. "Farmers, ranchers and agribusinesses are critical pieces of our society at all times, especially right now. I want every worker and employer involved in the food industry to know that your work has never been more important."
Agriculture plays a vital role in taking care of citizens' most basic needs during a public health emergency, and the Missouri Department of Agriculture (MDA) has been working closely with its partners to maintain the state's strong food supply chain.
