Does food play a role in shedding?

Hi... I've just changed my dog's food to a new brand...it's been about 3 weeks now and I've noticed a decline in his shedding --- He is a Siberian Husky and even thought I was brushing him twice a week - he was shedding alot -- after I changed his food (not for the shedding reason -- only because I researched and found that the brand I was giving him was not very good) -- I've noticed he isn't shedding as much.

Does anyone know if it could be the food change?

Yes, it definitely can. My dog was on Iams for a while. When I switched over to Merrick, her coat became much softer, shinier, and I think she sheds less too.

You can also supplement with Omega-3 fatty acids in the form of fish oil. It may help shedding only marginally, but it help promotes a healthy skin and coat. :)
