Food Survey

Food Survey

Many households face challenges covering basic needs. Sometimes we have to sacrifice the food budget to cover our living costs. The result is food insecurity, which is inadequate or insecure access to food due to financial limitations. Even though food banks have helped people put some food on the table, this is just an emergency measure and a temporary solution. Many times, food providers cannot cover all the household needs. The objective of this survey is to provide evidence of how people struggle every day to bring food home and the consequences on their lives and families. This will help us increase awareness of food insecurity and create actions that change the reality in Perth and Huron.
Because of the rise in the cost of living, food insecurity because of lack of money is increasing in frequency and severity and more challenges are faced by many households. Therefore, the Social Research and Planning Council created the Characteristics of Food Insecurity in Perth and Huron Survey to provide evidence of the household food insecurity status due to lack of money in Perth and Huron County.
