People’s Panel Survey on Food in Hull

This survey closes 17 January 2022. By completing the survey you have the option of entering into a prize draw where you could win £100, £150 or £250 in high street shopping vouchers as well as theatre tickets, free travel and exclusive experiences.

As the first part of a consultation on a Food Strategy for Hull, Hull Food Partnership has been working with Hull City Council’s Business Intelligence team to get this initial survey developed, and as many responses as possible are needed  to get a good quality data sample for analysis. The survey asks you about:

Feeling hot, hot, hot!

  • COP26
  • Would you rather – prioritise climate change over other government spending
  • Eating our insect overlords and changing your diet to reduce your carbon-footprint
  • Take the carbon-reduction quiz

Food, glorious food!

  • Lunch or dinner, dinner or tea?
  • Food swamp, desert or oasis?
  • Where do you get your food from?
  • Food waste

And Finally…

  • Setting a world record
  • Would you rather…?
  • How proud are you of living in Hull
