    • USDA Mission: Enhance the quality of life for the American people by supporting production of agriculture:

    • ensuring a safe, affordable, nutritious, and accessible food supply

    • caring for agricultural, forest, and range lands

    Food and nutrition service fns l.jpg
    Food and Nutrition Service (FNS)

    • works to increase food security and reduce hunger by providing children and low-income people with access to food, a healthy diet, and nutrition education in a manner that supports U.S. agriculture and inspires public confidence in the Nation's domestic nutrition assistance programs.

    • FNS nutrition assistance programs represent about half of USDA's budget.

    • Partner with HHS for Dietary Guidelines

    • Healthy Eating Index

    • Nutrient Content of the Food Supply

    • Food Guide Pyramid

    • Thrifty Food Plan

    Thrifty food plan l.jpg
    Thrifty Food Plan

    • Last revised 1999

    • Establishes menus and market basket costs for a minimal cost healthful diet

    • All menus meet Dietary Guidelines for Americans, the Recommended Dietary Allowances, and the serving recommendations of the Food Guide Pyramid.

    • Used as the basis for food stamp allocation decisions, and to determine the federal poverty level

    Federal poverty guidelines l.jpg
    Federal Poverty Guidelines

    • Poverty thresholds were originally derived in 1963-1964,using:

      • U.S. Department of Agriculture food budgets designed for families under economic stress

      • Data about what portion of their income families spent on food

    • The current thresholds were originally developed as the cost of a minimum diet times three

    • If total family income is less than the threshold appropriate for that family, the family is in poverty

    Food research action committee frac on the thrifty food plan l.jpg
    Food Research Action Committee (FRAC) on the Thrifty Food Plan

    • “USDA research shows that only 12 percent of low income households who spend at the Thrifty Food Plan level get their recommended dietary allowances for 11 key nutrients.”


    Frac on the thrifty food plan cont l.jpg
    FRAC on the Thrifty Food Plan, cont. Plan

    • The Thrifty Food Plan contains a number of assumptions which may not be accurate for many food stamp recipients. For example, purchasing foods for a nutritious diet requires adequate food preparation facilities, extensive time for food preparation, an in-depth knowledge about nutrition and inexpensive transportation to warehouse-type grocery stores or supermarkets.

The program is jointly sponsored by the National Cancer Institute in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Produce for Better Health Foundation, a nonprofit consumer education foundation representing the fruit and vegetable industry. The National Cancer Institute funds behavior change and communications research to determine strategies that are effective to increase fruit and vegetable consumption.

    The Fun Begins: 2003 Promotion

    • "There are a number of nominees that have very close ties to the food industry that might lead them to make recommendations that are weaker than they should be based on the science,"
