Q

that group of helpers I think should be added to the charity delivery. it is often unclear to benificiaries wherwe the food bag comes from
Maurice Di Rosso
41:33
Does the data show the portion of people on UC who are reporting as food insecure in the earlier slides? Slide 8 implies something around UC softening the impact...but by how much?
Denise Bentley
42:33
Hi - my first meeting, so forgive me, how have you collected this data - and how was this group of participants selected?
Zoe McIntyre
43:02
Hi Maurice, we have some later data on universal credit but happy to ask the question in terms of further analysis
Maurice Di Rosso
43:50
thanks Zoe - happy to wait til later
Zoe McIntyre
44:33
Hi Denise, this is the 4th polling we have done - it's done YouGov - with just over 4,000 participants from across UK and is weighted to be representative. Participants complete online
Ezmie McCutcheon
44:56
Do we know how many participants were in Scotland?
marjorie vale
45:07
Do you have this data presented by demographics? so we could see who is being more affected?
Zoe McIntyre
45:07
You can access info on our previous data via our website: https://foodfoundation.org.uk/news/
Ezmie McCutcheon
45:14
Thanks Zoe :)
Zoe McIntyre
46:42
Hi Ezmie, we do have a breakdown on Scottish data - happy to share with you after the webinar or email us at office@foodfoundation.org.uk if you want more info
Denise Bentley
46:46
OK - thank you for clarifying
Zoe McIntyre
47:28
Majorie - as above we do have more demographic data breakdowns. Feel free to email us on specific data breakdown if you'd like it

47:35
As the study is conducted online, how is it ensured that the sample is not biased towards people who have internet access?
Jennifer Robertson
48:19
I would be interested in the Scottish data too if possible. Thanks.
Flora Douglas
48:53
I'd be interested in the Scottish data too, Thanks,
Denise Bentley
48:54
Or those that are digitally excluded?
Zoe McIntyre
49:01
Hi Jia, given that it is completed online we should take into consideration when looking at the data that those are severely marginalised and/or do not have access to the internet may not be represented
jenny gillespie
49:08
I would also be interested in Scottish data many thanks

We are running Dignity in Practice workshops for the next two months. We address the stigma on accessing food and discuss the steps organisations can take to embed dignity in their services. Just in case people are interested: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/emergency-food-provision-dignity-during-covid-tickets-104752517600

Our local council declined to issue FSM vouchers during this half term, which also coincided with week 5 of Universal Credit. Not good
Ayushi Singh
50:15
What kind of tools did you use?
Priya Ahmed
50:23
Is there a breakdown to show the spread of food insecurity across different regions? in the context of BAME data?
Hannah Baugh
50:25
So sad to hear Lucy! I understand that councils are under financial pressure but its horrible to read that this isn't a priority for them!
Helen Gray
50:45
Very interesting findings on an important topic - however the slides are extremely hard to read on a small device at home - could you please make the captions, variables, actual % numbers etc larger in future? Thank you
Jenny rosborough
50:52
What’s the reason for not receiving school meal support? Issues with accessing vouchers?
Amanda Whatley
51:29
Really interested to see the findings relating to children being offered a substitute.
Zoe McIntyre
51:36
Hi Helen, sorry to hear that! The updated slides will be available on our website so you can see them more clearly - we will share link after the webinar
Helen Gray
51:57
thx
Lucy Antal
52:53
The council received considerable less funding from central govt than expected so say they can’t afford it.
Ayushi Singh
53:57
Were there any baseline surveys which you are using to compare that how food insecurity has shown different trend in times of COVID? What kind of tools are you using to assess this?
Sinead Furey
56:23
Was Northern Irleand included in this survey of all households? NI had a small sample in Wave 3 with households with children...
Zoe McIntyre
56:31
Hi Ayushi we compared data across our four pollings which we've undertaken since the start of lockdown to compare and then used a baseline from FSA's Food and You survey (2018)
Ayushi Singh
57:30
Thanks for clarification, this is great!
Zoe McIntyre
57:35
Hi Sinead, yes Northern Ireland has been included in our last 2 surveys - this one and the survey with households with children
Sinead Furey
57:45
Thank you!
Zoe McIntyre
59:32
Priva - in response to your ealier question - yes we have BAME breakdown of data and regional breakdowns

Thank you, Sharon. A powerful contribution: "Food aid recipients don't get to CHOOSE their food do they? They get GIVEN it!"
Helen Gray
01:14:49
Having looked through your slides on your previous report on families with children, I don’t see any data on children younger than school age. Our own research has found that infants and children under 2 years are often invisible in planning and food security - what will you be doing to address this especially vulnerable population?
Helen Gray
01:15:34
See indicator 9 on infant feeding in emergencies in our 2016 WBTi UK report

reducing us all to one group receiving free food bags is awful but when you are as stretched as we are it is very hard to recognise individuals. we try/ it is so important. the harm done to esteem will last
Zoe McIntyre
01:19:26
We've just got a few mins for questions - if anyone has anything they really want to ask any of our speakers let us know now
Zoe McIntyre
01:19:48
We are also happy to answer specifics after webinar - feel free to get in contact

the food industry needed to increase its margins

respect has gone to the wall

My over riding concern is what is heading our way. From the end of July the furloughing scheme will tail off and unemployment will jump significantly. Current Government funding support for Food provision is only for the next 12 weeks and whilst welcome is a drop in the ocean compared to need. Charities cannot continue to meet the increased demand for food provision without adequate levels of funding.
jehangir malik
01:25:11
I agree with Adrian 100%
Flora Douglas
01:25:16
I just want to say how helpful have this ongoing polling has been during this crisis. Being able to cite the findings and reference Scottish colleagues to this data and the narrative experiences shared on this forum - across academia, NHS and third sector - has been incredibly helpful. Thank you. Please keep up the good work. You may struggle to get the attention of UK Govt ministers at the moment, but this information is vital for the rest of us in the here and now and in the future.
