IFIC 2020 Food and Health Survey summary PPTX

0 0 832

As you are all likely aware, the International Food and Information Council (IFIC) conducts an annual survey that explores a variety of factors related to food purchases, perceptions, and practices.   I use results in my class each semester as findings relate to content - and often poll students with similar questions to compare to survey results.   In the 2020 IFIC Food and Health survey, 85% of Americans reported changes in their eating habits as a result of the pandemic - eating at home more, snacking more, thinking about food more....  Here is a PPTX prepared by one of my students that summarizes the 2020 survey (no name - student gave permission to share).
