Tanzanian eating habits change as food prices rise

The Citizen newspaper in Tanzania published a news story on 2 February, 2012 revealing changing eating habits of residents in the country’s largest city, based on a report released by the Dar es Salaam Mobile Phone Public Service Survey Project, implemented in collaboration with Twaweza. The front page story states that rising inflation and food prices has forced low income families to reduce consumption of beef, fish and chicken which are the main sources of protein for people in Dar es Salaam. As a consequence, some households could no longer afford three meals a day.

The Mobile Phone Public Service Survey Project calls respondents from a pool of 550 people once every two weeks to ask topical questions on public services in the city. The survey is implemented by the Dar es Salaam Mobile Phone Public Service Survey Project and funded by the World Bank in collaboration with Twaweza. Read more.
