The Food Assistance Landscape: FY 2011 Annual Report

Source: U.S. Department of Agriculture

From the publication web page:

This report examines trends in USDA’s food and nutrition assistance programs through fiscal 2011. It also summarizes a number of ERS research reports on WIC-related topics that were released in fiscal 2011.

From the report:

About 1 in every 4 Americans participates in at least 1 of the 15 domestic food and nutrition assistance programs of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) that provide a nutritional safety net for millions of children and low-income adults. These programs represent a significant Federal investment, accounting for over two-thirds of USDA’s budget. USDA’s Economic Research Service (ERS) conducts studies and evaluations of these programs. This report uses preliminary data from USDA’s Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), the agency responsible for managing the programs, to examine trends in the food and nutrition assistance programs through fiscal 2011 (October 1, 2010 to September 30, 2011).
