The CDP Study is funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
1. Expand the reach (population), scope (multisectoral content), validity, and availability of the Hunger Center Longitudinal Database (HCL database).
2. Evaluate a novel model of food distribution that has been developed as a solution to improving the culture of health in food insecure neighborhoods.
The project evaluation will involve merging of multiple electronic databases from the health, economic, and public sector. Advanced spatial econometric methods will be employed to estimate the impacts of the food distribution system on food insecure households economic, health, and social well-being.
