On 17 March 2021, the Food Standards Authority published a report exploring people’s experiences of food during the COVID-19 pandemic. The research methodology included a nationally representative survey of 10,069 UK adults, an online deliberative method called Polis with 1,006 UK respondents, a series of four deliberative workshops, and an open access survey of 911 adults.

The report published its findings on the public’s experience during the pandemic in three key areas: 

  • food insecurity 
  • UK food supply 
  • diet and health eating
