Senator Collett to host policy hearing on the impact of COVID-19 on Pennsylvania’s food supply chain

Senator Maria Collett (D-12) will host a virtual policy hearing with Senator Judy Schwank (D-11) from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, June 18, to discuss the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the state’s food supply chain, and in particular its non-retail food supply chain. The hearing will include testimonies from local industry experts and business owners, including a senior executive from Clemens Food Group / Hatfield Meats, the business that brought this issue to Collett’s attention. Lawmakers will also discuss ways the legislature can assist struggling businesses through this difficult time and help prevent future food chain issues.
