Food and Nutrition Policy

CARD’s FNP division analyzes food consumption, food safety, nutrition, and food assistance programs in the United States and selected developing nations. Analyses include price and income responses, dietary assessment, program efficiency and cost, and food safety and risk assessment.

The FNP Division has several major projects underway to analyze markets for food safety and quality, the role of food assistance programs under welfare reform, the measurement of hunger and food security, the role of government food programs in improving the nutritional status of individuals, and the cost effectiveness of food safety regulations.
