USDA typically administers 15 domestic food and nutrition assistance programs that together affect the lives of millions of people and account for roughly two-thirds of its annual budget. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, USDA launched additional programs and expanded the scope and coverage of existing ones.

In this webinar, Economic Research Service (ERS) Research Economist Saied Toossi provided an overview of the fiscal year 2022 edition of the Food and Nutrition Assistance Landscape annual report series, which examines recent developments in these programs along with trends in program participation and spending. The report also includes an examination of the economic and social indicators related to participation in these programs and a summary of ERS food and nutrition assistance research.
