The Big Picture: How is COVID-19 affecting how we feed ourselves?
NEW TODAY: Our second survey of how people are managing to feed themselves. We asked about food insecurity and found that 3 million people have experienced hunger since lockdown.
COVID-19 is having a significant impact on the UK food system and how we feed ourselves. To understand what this will mean for citizens, we’ll be monitoring trajectories for these variables:
- Food prices
- Infection and mortality rates
- Fruit and vegetable sales
- Social cohesion and food poverty
Follow system-wide developments here as we track shifting challenges and demands, and look at how coronavirus-driven change is reflected in the food system.
