About the trial and the evaluation

You will receive two online surveys about your current eating habits, some basic information about you and any changes you've made over time. Your responses will remain confidential and will be used solely for evaluation purposes.

You will receive the first survey at the start and the second survey in a few months.

In collaboration with Auckland Council, this trial will help us track your progress and learn from your experience. Your dedication and insights are invaluable, and we really appreciate your involvement in this journey towards a healthier, more sustainable future. Thank you for your time and commitment to making a difference.
