YouTube Video: Efeitos da Pandemia na alimentação e na situação de segurança alimentar no Brasil

Estimates from the United Nations (UN), released in June 2020, suggested that by the end of 2020 more than 130 million people worldwide could be food insecure, showing a worsening due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Interested in understanding this phenomenon in Brazil, the Research Group Food for Justice: Power, Politics and Food Inequalities in the Bioeconomy, based at the Freie Universität Berlin, Germany, conducted a public opinion survey. The data shows a picture of high food insecurity and reduced consumption of healthy foods during the Covid-19 pandemic. The results of the survey were released and debated on April 13, 2021.
