Food Assistance Research Briefs
Food Assistance and Nutrition Research Report No. (FANRR34) ,
America’s most important resource is its children. Many of this Nation’s children are served by one or more of USDA’s domestic food assistance programs. ERS' Food Assistance and Nutrition Research Program created the Food Assistance Research Briefs series to provide concise and timely insights from recent ERS research of Federal food assistance programs. This group of briefs looks at some of the issues currently facing those programs targeted specifically to children. These programs include the National School Lunch Program, the WIC Program, the Child and Adult Care Food Program, and the Summer Food Service Program, and account for over one-third of total spending for food assistance.
