Nutrition Education and Local Food Access Dashboard
The goal of the dashboard is to provide a county-level visualization of FNS nutrition support, specifically nutrition education and local food access, alongside other metrics related to hunger and nutritional health.
The dashboard can be used by federal, state and local agencies, tribal nations, and local partners to assess concentration of nutrition resources, as well as gaps, for:
- Providing collaborative cross-program nutrition technical assistance,
- Developing nutrition action plans geared to target and optimize resources, and
- Identifying potential partners for expanding best practices.
Please see our "About the Data Guide" if you have data-related questions.
