Vulnerable Shoppers

When one thinks of pandemic response, access to medical care is probably first on the list of priorities. But people need to eat as well. If we use Maslow’s hierarchy, the foundation for a human is:

Not sure we’re going to see homeostasis any time soon, but the others need to be attended to. Food and household supplies have been a challenge for everyone, but particularly seniors and other “at-risk” populations. In response to that, a number of grocery stores are announcing special times set aside for vulnerable people to shop.

The scope of the pandemic 2nd and 3rd order effects are just starting to be realized. Good to see companies stepping up to look out for those who have a tough time competing for resources.
