This is GBFB's second annual Massachusetts statewide survey on food access.
From December 2021 to February 2022, using an online survey company, GBFB surveyed more than 3,000 Massachusetts adults.
The survey oversampled adults with lower incomes to ensure we heard from people most likely to need food assistance. Statistical weighting methods were used to collect estimates representative of the Massachusetts adult population.
The survey was adapted from the National Food Access and COVID Research Team (NFACT) survey and modified to focus on issues related to food insecurity and food assistance use. GBFB modified the NFACT survey with input from statewide community partners including GBFB's Health and Research Advisory Council.
