WEBINAR: A Crisis within a Crisis: Food Insecurity and Covid-19

Throughout the pandemic, the Food Foundation has been tracking food insecurity at a household level. This January, we have completed the seventh round of nationally representative surveys since March last year. During the webinar, we inform on the very latest survey findings while drawing out key trends in our data over the course of the pandemic. Read the full report here.

We particularly look at:

  • Food insecurity levels among the general population and households with children
  • Drivers of food insecurity and how these have changed during the pandemic
    Inequalities in food insecurity and key vulnerable groups including people with disabilities and food sector workers
  • The impact of Covid-19 on children and families
  • Recommendations for recovery
