Food Mapping Research

Urban Roots is currently conducting a Food Insecurity Mapping survey on behalf of the Scottish Government.

If your organisation  provides free or subsidised food to households experiencing, or at risk of experiencing, food insecurity we’d love to hear from you. 

The Scottish Government is collecting information about organisations responding to household food insecurity across Scotland. The data collected in this survey will be used to better support organisations by gathering up to date contact information for projects and a comprehensive picture of current provision.

The Scottish Government is committed to tackling food insecurity and supporting communities to deliver dignified responses. They want people to have enough income to feed themselves and their families.

We need your help to give us a picture of what is happening across Scotland in order to support the important work of tackling food insecurity and achieving the goal to end hunger by 2030 .

Please will you give us a few minutes of your time to complete the following survey, and forward the link to any other organisations/contacts you know who may also be involved in food work.

The survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete online. You can save your answers and return at a later time. Alternatively, you can complete the survey via the telephone or as a paper-based survey – please contact Urban Roots to discuss these options.

All information will be kept confidentially, accessible only to Scottish Government officials working on tackling food insecurity. The data collected will be stored by the Scottish Government until August 2022, when it will be reviewed. No identifiable information about individual organisations will be made publicly available.

The survey will close on August 4th, 2019.

The Urban Roots research team working on this are: Emma Iller, Anne Philbrow, Sarah Zadik, Clem Pabion and Kerry Park. If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Urban Roots on or phone 0141 613 2766.
