Tasmania has always had issues with food insecurity but during the COVID 19 epidemic this issue has really become prominent. Families that were not usually affected by food insecurity were suddenly faced with not being able to provide meals for their family. The loss of access to breakfast programs and the school canteen has been markedly impacted on children eating during the day. This issue will not go away in the COVID 19 recovery phase and needs to have a focus in discussions at the PEASRC.
