The primary focus of the U.S. Department of
Agriculture’s nutrition assistance programs is providing food security
-- access by all people at all times to enough nutritious food for an
active, healthy life. The Food and Nutrition Service, the agency that
administers these programs, know that success depends on the strength and
range of our partnerships with State and local governments, community
organizations and advocates, and everyone else who is concerned about the
problem. By working together we can make food security a reality in all
our communities -- big and small, urban and rural.
We invite you -- we need you -- to join with us
in whatever way you can. Our Food Security Action Resources give you some
tools to get started. We hope you find them useful in our combined efforts
to bring an adequate and healthy diet to all Americans.
