KANSAS CITY, Mo. — While restaurants are forced to adapt to new business models, and grocery stores struggle to keep basics on the shelves, there’s one sector of the food industry that’s been flooded with new customers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This time on Chew Diligence, Lindsay and Jill talk with local farmers and ranchers about the impacts, both good and bad, the health crisis has presented for them.

On this episode, our co-hosts are joined by Patrick Montgomery of KC Cattle Company, Matt Shatto of Shatto Milk Company and Alicia Ellingsworth of the the Kansas City Food Hub.
