Description
 
In FY 2007, the Food Stamp Program provided $30 billion in nutrition assistance benefits to 26 million individuals. The diets of many low-income individuals, like the U.S. population overall, do not meet federal dietary guidelines. One potential strategy for increasing the purchases of targeted foods that contribute to a healthy diet is to incorporate into the program financial incentives for purchasing these foods. This report identifies: (1) what is known about the effectiveness of financial incentives and other approaches intended to increase the purchase of targeted foods; (2) the key factors to consider in designing a financial incentive program; and (3) options available to the Food and Nutrition Service for implementing financial incentives. Charts and tables.
