Running out of food an ongoing issue for Tasmanians during COVID-19: Report 37

Even as the supermarket shelves return to normal and panic buying becomes a thing of the past, rates of food insecurity reported by Tasmanians have not greatly improved since earlier in the pandemic.

In our latest survey of 1,133 Tasmanians, we found an alarming number (close to 1 in 5) have run out of food because they could not afford to buy more during the COVID-19 pandemic. This represents an increase relative to pre-COVID levels and shows there has been little improvement compared to results from the Food Survey we conducted in June.
