Abstract : We combined household-level, pre-COVID-19 in-person survey data with post-pandemic phone survey data, along with local government area (LGA)-level information on access to school feeding services. We used a difference-in-difference approach and examined temporal trends in the food security of households with and without access to school feeding services. […] Our findings show that disruptions in education and nutritional services have endangered households’ food security in Nigeria. These findings can help inform immediate and medium-term policy responses, including the design of social protection policies and alternative policies to substitute for those nutritional services affected by the pandemic.
