Millions of Americans rely on public and private sup­port to help meet their nutritional needs. This brief looks at family and individual participation in nutri­tion assistance programs in calendar year 2015 as reported in Wave 3 of the 2014 SIPP. In this brief, nutrition assistance refers to either participation in one of the major means-tested federal food support programs or receipt of community-based support. The federal food support programs included in this analysis are SNAP, free or reduced-price school breakfast and lunch, and WIC. Community-based nutrition assistance includes food support offered by government social service agencies, charitable organiza­tions, family, friends or some other entity.
