Federal Child Nutrition Programs Are Important to Rural Households. Issue Brief No. 11
Wauchope, Barbara; Shattuck, Anne
Carsey Institute
This brief, based on data from the U.S. Census Bureau, examines how rural families use four of the major federal child nutrition programs. It finds that 29 percent of rural families with children participate but that there are barriers to these nutrition programs, such as the lack of public transportation and high operating costs for rural schools and child care programs. (Contains 1 figure, 2 tables, and 15 endnotes.)
