Citizen Spotlight: Food Safety in Indore


Equitable access to healthy food is an important part of healthy urban planning. In Indore, India a large portion of the population consumes food from street food markets. The USAID-funded Building Healthy Cities (BHC) project conducted a rapid feedback survey in Indore from November 2021—January 2022 to understand citizens’ knowledge and attitudes around food safety and hygiene in street food markets, and changes in consumption practices since the beginning of COVID-19 restrictions. The survey was conducted both online and offline to ensure a more diverse population and targeted regular consumers of street food from various Indore markets. This brief summarizes the survey findings.
