Has COVID-19 impacted food supply and access?
The team at Edith Cowan University’s South West campus is conducting a new research project, with consumers and people working in food supply, to increase understanding of COVID-19’s impact on our food availability and access.
Through a community survey, the team aims to understand how COVID-19 might have changed the food community members have bought and consumed, their opinion on how food availability and access has been impacted and their perceptions of locally grown food. The team will also conduct telephone interviews with people working in food supply such as farmers, wholesalers, retailers, hospitality staff, people working in childcare, aged care or food relief staff/volunteers. The interviews will aim to understand how COVID-19 has impacted South West WA food supply chains, perceptions of changes to consumer food purchasing behaviour, food supply innovations and opportunities and aspirations for post-COVID-19 food supply.

People working in food supply who would like further information about interviews, or to get involved, can email Dr Stephanie Godrich from Edith Cowan University South West Campus at firstname.lastname@example.org
