A message on behalf of Evidence & Network on UK Household Food Insecurity

We are pleased to publish the full suite of reports from the local case study work package of the UKRI funded Food Vulnerability during COVID-19 research project today. The suite of reports includes,

  • A comparative report  ‘Comparing local responses to household food insecurity during COVID-19 across the UK (March – August 2020)’ with Executive Summary
  • Eight individual area case study reports (Argyll and Bute, Belfast, Cardiff, Derry City and Strabane, Herefordshire, Moray, Swansea and West Berkshire)
  • Methodological Appendix

The research highlighted the unprecedented scale of local responses to food access issues between March – August 2020. This included work by new and existing food providers from across sectors, almost complete overhauls in working practices, and partnership and collaborative working across spaces and places. There were levels of funding for food provision that have not been seen in recent times and new groups of volunteers, organisations and companies became involved in food support for the first time. Across this range of actors, partnership working and working together was a key enabler of responses.  The research also raises key questions looking ahead including what are the longer-term legacies of this period?

These reports have gone live on the project website today and are available here:  http://speri.dept.shef.ac.uk/food-vulnerability-during-covid-19/#case-studies

Please forward this email to your colleagues, local organisations and other interested parties.
