SNAP and Emergency Food System Use and Users: A Report for UWKC

The original research questions for this project are, “What is the relationship nationally between SNAP program users, and emergency food system users/clients? What are the characteristics of who uses each program, and how are they similar or different from one another?” United Way of King County (UWKC) seeks to answer these questions to inform their advocacy and outreach strategies for SNAP enrollment. My goals for this project as a student in University of Washington’s Nutrition Sciences Program and MPH candidate are to “communicate[s] audience-appropriate public health content, both in writing and through oral presentation,” and “describe[s] the basic components and determinants of the US food and nutrition systems.”

This project was completed as part of NUTR 596: Nutrition Practice Capstone.
