COVID-19 has provided a significant challenge to a variety of societal institutions, including health, education, food, and economic institutions, all across the world. It has impacted both developed and developing countries. Prior to COVID-19, many countries, particularly those in the Third World, such as Nigeria, were suffering from hunger and food insecurity. The study looks on how the virus affects food security in Ekiti State, south-west Nigeria. The information was gathered through the use of a questionnaire in a descriptive study methodology. The study discovered that the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic include: a lack of money to buy food, a rise in food costs, and panic buying. The majority of the respondents were unable to receive any sort of assistance, and the study suggests that the government and other relevant bodies devise a comprehensive intervention to help disadvantaged households.
