Insight conducts research and analysis to help ensure all low-income Americans have access to a healthy diet, whether at home or at school.
Barriers That Limit Access to a Healthy Diet
Insight is identifying the individual, household, and environmental barriers that limit SNAP participants’ access to a healthy diet and examining how these barriers vary by household demographics, economic characteristics, and geography.
Food Deserts and SNAP Households Residing in Them
Insight assessed the feasibility of using geographic information system tools to catalog SNAP households in areas with limited access to healthy foods—known as food deserts—and recommended a plan for a pilot study of a food desert catalog.
Evaluation and Review of Federal Meal Programs
Insight staff collected and analyzed meal program data in more than 30 states to inform strategic planning, training, and quality reviews of federal meal programs across hundreds of local offices throughout the United States.
