Melissa Wilmarth - The National Household Food Acquisition and Purchase Survey (FoodAPS) data presents a unique opportunity to examine how households’ in varying social, economic, and environmental contexts acquire and consume food, and how these decisions are related to Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) program goals. This research will examine the complex relationships among households’ resources, food acquisition patterns, and SNAP program goals of reducing food insecurity. This research will investigate the effects of households’ resources (financial, time, and in-kind) on their food acquisition patterns. What are the determinants of food insecurity for low-income households; specifically, SNAP participants and non-SNAP participant households? Second, does access to transportation and distance to food stores differ for low-income households; specifically, SNAP participants and non-SNAP participant households?
