Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has urged Singaporeans to work together to see through the stressful novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) situation in the country. And there is no need to panic and stock up on food because there are enough supplies.

Should it be "there is enough supply" because the antecedent is "food"?

Thanks.

No, because food is seen as a plural noun, in that there is more than one type of food, and more than one type of food is meant by referring to "supplies."
