Residents Survey - Consultation on food provision in the Scottish Borders 

The purpose of the consultation is to identify people’s current situation in relation to food poverty, with the aim of making access to food easier for people.   Feedback provided will;

  • Feed into subsequent food strategy and Good Food Nation Act.
  • Identify the food needs of residents.
  • Inform what food services are currently on offer and aims to avoid duplication of services.
  • Use data to better signpost to services.

We appreciate that this is a difficult time for many people, and the cost-of-living crisis has had and continues to have a significant impact on lives.

We would be grateful if you could complete the survey to help us get a better picture of the current impact to residents throughout the Scottish Borders.

Open to:   All residents of the Scottish Borders
