ABSTRACT

In this work main programs of nutrition-supporting in the USA were presented as a part of national and local social and health policy. Following programs were reviewed namely: FSP (The Food Stamp Program), NSLP (The National School Lunch Program), SBP (School Breakfast Program), SMP (The Special Milk Program), WIC Program (The Special Supplemental Food For Women, Infants and Children), SFSP (The Summer Food Service Program). The level of monthly income per person (no more than 130% of poverty line) is the condition for participation in every program. Some programs (e.g. FSP) are addressed to all citizens, who are fulfilling income criteria, whereas other (e.g. WIC, SBP) are available to selected population groups only. Assistance within these programs may occur in various forms (e.g. food stamps for family, possibilities in using of low cost meals, free of cost milk for school children). Authors suggest to utilize some of US experience in nutrition-supporting programs also in Poland.
