As the COVID-19 pandemic progresses, trade-offs have emerged between the need to contain the virus and to avoid disastrous economic and food security crises that hurt the world's poor and hungry most. Although no major food shortages have emerged as yet, agricultural and food markets are facing disruptions because of labor shortages created by restrictions on movements of people and shifts in food demand resulting from closures of restaurants and schools as well as from income losses. Export restrictions imposed by some countries have disrupted trade flows for staple foods such as wheat and rice. The pandemic is affecting all four pillars of food security (1): availability (is the supply of food adequate?)

Introduction The emergent coronavirus disease, COVID-19, presents a significant and critical threat to worldwide health since its outbreak in early December 2019 (Wu et al., 2020). In order to reduce and delay community transmission, diminishing the burden on healthcare systems, while also providing the best possible care for patients, most regions and nations have enforced exceptional public health measures together with unprecedented social and economic interventions (IMF, 2020).
Community-based measures include actions taken by national and/or regional governments, and companies to protect vulnerable groups, employees and the overall population. The measures carried out, which include interventions within workplaces, educational centers, public transportation, spiritual and cultural venues, among others, aim to decrease transmission through changes in behavior to levels that can be managed by current health care capacity (Cornwall, 2020). 2. 2.1. 2.2.
