Food Security and Hunger

National food security policy aims to ensure that all Americans, especially children, have access to a healthy diet and do not experience food access limitations caused by lack of money or other resources. Mathematica is a leader in assessing the food security of low-income populations and in examining the impacts of nutrition assistance programs on the prevalence and severity of food insecurity. Mathematica also studies the emergency food assistance system that food-insecure households turn to for help. This loosely connected network of food pantries, emergency kitchens, and shelters provides food, usually on a walk-in basis. We conducted three national surveys to show how well the system functions, and help the nation's food banks understand their clientele's needs.
