This report constitutes an overview assessment of how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the UK’s food and nutrition security. It considers how the various parts of the food system have been impacted and what the consequences have been. It reports indications of sustained food prices increasing globally, which coupled with economic downturn, will exacerbate existing inequalities between being food secure and insecure, both in the UK and globally.
