NMSU researchers investigate food insecurity amid COVID-19

A group of four New Mexico State University researchers, including Donovan Fuqua, left and Victor Pimentel, right, collaborated to collect key data and uncover factors leading to food insecurity amid COVID-19, while developing large-scale recovery strategies for companies developed in the future.

LAS CRUCES – It’s been two years since the coronavirus pandemic kicked in and changed millions of lives across the country. For many people, one of the harsh consequences is the lack of reliable daily access to food. A group of researchers from New Mexico State University teamed up to collect key data and uncover factors that led to food insecurity amid COVID-19, while developing large-scale recovery strategies for businesses in the future.

NMSU faculty members Donovan Fuqua, Barry Brewer, Victor Pimentel and Faruk Arslan in the College 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 poses, especially access to food. The work is part of the newly established Center for Supply Chain Entrepreneurship led by Brewer and Carlo Mora.
