In 2017, Hurricane Maria swept through the Caribbean, leaving $91 billion of destruction in its wake. Most of this destruction was in Puerto Rico, causing a collapse of transportation infrastructure, the power grid, and the agricultural system, which suffered nearly $780 million of this damage. 90% of Puerto Rico’s food is imported, leaving it particularly vulnerable to natural disasters, and, with the collapse of local agriculture and infrastructure in the wake of Maria, access to food–especially fresh food–has become incredibly difficult. The issue has only been compounded by the COVID-19 crisis. Supply chain failures continue to disrupt food imports, increasing the amount of PAN participants (Puerto Rico’s version of SNAP) to 1.35 million–over ⅓ of Puerto Ricans.
