Food in rural South Australia survey

 

Overview

In 1999, a survey of rural food supply was undertaken. The study investigated the cost, quality and variety of the food supply in rural and remote parts of the state. It found that people living outside Adelaide and outside large rural centres generally paid more for food and had fewer fresh food choices. This was particularly evident in the smaller towns, the most remote locations, the most socioeconomically disadvantaged towns and places where there were no large shops. In addition, people in some remote areas needed to shop on or near the day of delivery in order to obtain good quality produce. The study was modelled on the Queensland Healthy Food Access Basket studies.
