We study all of the major U.S. food and nutrition assistance programs, including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, school meal programs, the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC), and the Administration on Aging’s Nutrition Services Program. Our work informs development of nutrition policy, helping legislators and program administrators understand how changes in policy may affect participation, costs, and nutritional quality.
