Nine in 10 U.S. adults support their local government providing resources for healthy food and nutrition assistance to low-income families in their community. Park and recreation professionals and their agencies fill the role of nutrition provider to many adults and children, a responsibility of increased importance in the face of funding cuts in social assistance programs.

Key Findings

  • People across all demographic groups (e.g., income, parentage, education, race/ethnicity, geography) strongly support their local government providing resources for healthy food and nutrition assistance to low-income families in their communities.
