Food Assistance and Nutrition Research Small Grants Program: Executive Summaries of 2000 Research Grants

This report summarizes research findings from the Food Assistance and Nutrition Research Small Grants Program. The Economic Research Service created the program in 1998 to stimulate new and innovative research on food assistance and nutrition issues and to broaden the participation of social science scholars in these issues. The report includes summaries of the second set of small grants, awarded for 1-year research projects in the summer and fall of 1999, which focus on food security, hunger, and public- and private-sector efforts to aid low-income residents of the United States through food and nutrition assistance.
