Measuring the Cost of a Thrifty Food Plan in Puerto Rico
In response to a Congressional Directive, USDA commissioned the Measuring the Cost of a Thrifty Food Plan (TFP) in Puerto Rico study. The purpose of the study was to provide USDA with options for measuring the cost of a TFP in Puerto Rico. To identify options, Insight conducted an environmental scan, convened an expert study group, conducted interviews with subject matter experts, and synthesized information across sources. The report describes the final options, along with each option’s advantages and disadvantages, as well as cost and timeline to implement.
