Evaluation is the systematic application of research methods used to assess the design, implementation, outcomes and impact of programs.

In partnership with subject matter experts, practitioners and member food banks, Feeding America evaluates programs, interventions and strategies that address food insecurity and diet-related chronic disease in diverse households and communities around the nation.  By leveraging the strength of the food bank network, Feeding America has the opportunity to disseminate best practices that facilitate continuous learning and improvement of programs and build evidence of improved life outcomes for the people we serve.
