Marion Nestle Shares List of Helpful USDA Reports

In a blog post over the holiday weekend, Marion Nestle shared a helpful list of U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) reports the agency has released recently. Included among the reports is information on individual states (population, income, poverty and employment rates, agricultural characteristics), the WIC program (Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children, which serveds 9.1 million people a month), agricultural statistics, foodborne illnesses, organic farming, local food systems and more.

These types of reports are free and released regularly by USDA. They’re definitely helpful if you’re trying to brush up on a food topic – especially in terms of what it means as a U.S. citizen.
