RIDGE Project Summaries, 2008: Food Assistance and Nutrition Research Innovation and Development Grants in Economics Programs
T. Alexander Majchrowicz (ed)
This report summarizes research findings from the Food Assistance and Nutrition Research Innovation and Development Grants in Economics Program (RIDGE), formerly known as the Small Grants Program. The U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) Economic Research Service (ERS) created the program in 1998 to stimulate new and innovative research on food and nutrition assistance issues and to broaden the network of social scientists who collaborate in investigating the food and nutrition challenges that exist across communities, regions, and States. The report includes summaries of the research findings of projects that were awarded 1-year grants in summer and fall 2007. The results of these research projects were presented at the RIDGE conference in Oct. 2008. The projects include analyses of vendor access and fruit and vegetable availability in the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC); effects of food insecurity on the development of infants and toddlers; administrative data to evaluate the Child and Adult Care Food Program in family child care homes; the economics of the Thrifty Food Plan; and food stamp use among the elderly. Several of the projects focus on specific populations, such as immigrants, Native Americans, or people living in the rural South.
