During the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, five online surveys were conducted to better understand food access, concerns, and food system perceptions in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, Quebec, and Atlantic Canada (New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland and Labrador).
In “Food Access, Concerns, and Perceptions During the Covid-19 Pandemic,” attendees will hear from the lead researchers about how the pandemic affected people’s food access, food purchasing, and altered their perceptions of the food system. The researchers will highlight what they learned from the survey, provide quantitative and qualitative assessment of the pooled data across four of those surveys (BC, AB, ON, and QB), and offer regional vignettes to help us understand the differences in the survey response across regions. Their presentations will be followed by reflections by the discussant and an open question and answer period.
