In 2023, more food shortages may be coming and they might be worse.

Why is the U.S. still facing food shortage issues?

  • Supply chain disruptions
  • Fertilizer and fuel shortages
  • Increase in food costs
  • Climate change
  • Impacted crop production

Tennessee Farmer Stephanie Nash said:

I definitely think we have a food security threat...I believe 2023 is going to be rough. Worse than this year.
Food costs are increasing, the overall production of our operation are increasing...We have to be able to get paid more to make it.

What can we expect to see in short supply going into 2023?

According to Mashed, these are some foods that you may see missing from shelves in stores in 2023:

  • Bread
  • Butter
  • Tomatoes
  • Corn
  • Vegetable oil
  • Flour
  • Beef
  • Aluminum canned goods
  • Champagne

Mashed reports:

...between the lingering pandemic, worsening climate change, and the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine, which began in February 2022, anyone hoping for a reprieve from food shortages in 2023 shouldn't hold their breath.
