COVID-19 Client Follow-up Survey

The Montana Food Bank Network conducted a follow-up survey to the 2020 COVID-19 Client Impact Survey to measure how the pandemic continued to effect Montanans. MFBN provided survey materials to 134 network partners, BackPack Programs and Mail-A-Meal coordinators. We asked these partners to distribute the one-page survey to households participating in their programs and services.

Each agency was able to determine their own survey distribution method, either placing stickers with access to the online questionnaire on food boxes, or providing paper questionnaires to clients. The survey was open from July 1 to July 31, 2021. We received responses from 551 households across 43 Montana counties.
