Children’s HealthWatch and the Food Research and Action Center (FRAC) publish a tri-annual newsletter about new research on nutrition and food insecurity in the United States. It summarizes recent and important food insecurity and hunger research from academia, government agencies, think tanks and health and policy organizations to ensure that the newest, most interesting, and most important research is accessible and reaches a wide audience.
This periodical is intended for advocates, policymakers, researchers, journalists, nutrition program providers, educators, health professionals and others who care about these issues. We hope it will be a useful resource for everyone working to determine what hunger and food insecurity mean to people in our country, and why and how to end these persistent problems.
We gratefully acknowledge the support of the ConAgra Foods Foundation for making this periodical possible. We look forward to your comments and suggestions so that we can improve future issues.
