Dear North Carolina Resident,
The purpose of this survey is to better understand how COVID-19 (the coronavirus disease caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2) has impacted North Carolinans’ health, particularly as it relates to food security. Food security is defined by the United States Department of Agriculture as having consistent access to enough food for an active, healthy life. We are interested in how the food you access and consume has changed since the COVID-19 pandemic began (early March 2020 in North Carolina), along with other related factors that might impact what and how much you eat, such as physical activity and stress.
Thank you for considering your participation in this survey. It should take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete. If you are an adult (at least 18 years of age), currently residing in North Carolina, you are eligible for this survey. Your participation is valuable, however some of the survey questions are sensitive, so we encourage you to complete the survey in a private, quiet place. If possible, we recommend using a private browsing mode on your web browser to ensure your responses are kept private.
