Covid-19 Employment Disruption & Missing Meal Analysis Update

Feeding Florida commissioned Mari Gallagher Research & Consulting Group (MG) – a firm with expertise in hunger, the economy, and statistical models – to conduct a COVID-19 employment disruption analysis at small geographic units across Florida as a pathway to understand and address the additional need for charitable feeding during this crisis. The analysis estimates how many additional workers have or soon will become unemployed or furloughed without pay as a result of the pandemic. Results are pinpointed for over 11,400 hyper local areas across Florida. Additionally, Feeding Florida commissioned an update of MG’s Meal Deficit Metric model to account for the employment disruption of COVID-19, also at these same small pinpointed areas.
