Tell us your story! Take this short survey to help us understand the impact of COVID-19 on your food business.
The University of Minnesota and University of Wisconsin-Madison CIAS, as part of a multi-regional study funded by the USDA, has launched a survey to assess and quantify the impacts of the COVID-19 on the farm and food communities in our two-state region. The survey includes questions about production, income, financing, staffing, procurement, distribution and sales.
The survey should take about 20 minutes to complete and results will be aggregated for confidentiality. The survey should be completed by a business owner, manager or professional who has knowledge about company sales, staffing and COVID-19 policies.
Individuals completing the survey (one per business) can opt into a drawing for $200 gift certificates to Target or Amazon.
