Initial Food Security Response to the COVID-19 Outbreak: Survey Findings

As part of an integrated effort to support humanitarian actors responding to major disease outbreaks, READY sought to better understand the experience of these actors during the first months of COVID-19 in selecting and utilizing transfer modalities (such as cash, vouchers, or direct food assistance) for food security. This report presents key findings from READY’s 2021 survey of humanitarian actors delivering assistance and aims to share information to support future preparedness and readiness efforts for future outbreaks.
