The Quarterly Pulse Survey many of you completed in June shows some continuing trends. Most respondents said that meat, poultry, fresh produce, fresh dairy, and shelf-stable items are what you most want. Just over half of respondents said they were not in need of additional food. This is a positive reflection on the work we have been doing to increase the amount of food available to you and we continue striving for more food and food types in our supply. We have also seen demand drop slightly from pandemic highs. 35% of agencies responding to the survey said they saw more visits to their sites compared to the same time last year, while 34% saw no change, and 28% saw a decrease. View a summary of the survey responses here.

With the pandemic waning, we do not currently plan to do another Quarterly Pulse Survey, but we continue to seek your feedback on important issues as we move forward as a state-wide network. And of course if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions please reach out to your Network Relations Representative.
