New SNDA-IV Data Provide Updated Picture of School Meals
In recognition of National Nutrition Month, Mathematica is presenting findings from some of our most recent, relevant nutrition studies. We recently collected data from nationally representative samples of public school districts and schools in school year (SY) 2009-2010 in the fourth School Nutrition Dietary Assessment (SNDA-IV) study. A new fact sheet provides findings on school lunches.
National Survey to Shed Light on Household Food Choices and Expenditures
Mathematica has been selected to conduct the National Household Food Purchase and Acquisition Study for the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). This five-year effort will fill in critical gaps in existing data on the food purchases of U.S. households and help USDA assess its food assistance programs for low-income families. Read the release.
