New Program Participation Dashboard Goes Live

USDA's Food and Nutrition Service is pleased to announce the launch of a new, interactive dashboard that features state, territory, and national level data for FNS nutrition programs. Site visitors will have greater insight into critical programs that touch the lives of millions of Americans daily.

A New Tool

The FNS Program Participation Dashboard is a tool that provides new, in-depth insight into publicly available data, specifically, program participation and meals served across ten FNS nutrition programs. This dashboard is available to the public and uses the most recent data available. It allows users to explore and display data in a number of ways and across different geographic locations. Most importantly, it makes key programmatic data available to download in an easy-to-use format.

This marks the eighth interactive dashboard that FNS has released and is the first to bring together participation data across FNS nutrition programs in one place. This dashboard reinforces FNS’s commitment to open and accessible data. For more information, and to view all the data dashboards, visit Data Visualization.
