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 will be released and debated on April 13, 2021, at 2:00 pm (brazilian time).
