In March 2020, the community and voluntary, private and public sectors responded to the Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdown. Community food initiatives either closed because of lockdown restrictions or rapidly changed their services to meet a rise in the need for food delivery or food aid services.

This snapshot attempts to summarise what happened, and focuses particularly on the responses of community food initiatives and others that may influence their work.

We also try to look forward – and consider how what we have learnt could be useful in the future.
