Food Insecurity Evaluation
Funder: Kaiser Permanente Colorado
Timeframe: 2016 – 2018
Purpose: Assess the impact of funding to increase enrollment in Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and participation in Summer Food Service Programs. Thirteen non-profit community and health care organizations received grants to decrease hunger through enrollment in SNAP and access to nutritious food for low-income children through the Summer Food Service Programs. The evaluation focuses on understanding how these organizations screened for food insecurity and measures whether they increased enrollment in SNAP and participation in the Summer Food Service programs.
