Engaging Communities in Food and Nutrition

Good Food at Home: An online ordering/delivery fresh produce incentive program for families with lower incomes

Grocery online ordering/delivery access is growing for families with lower incomes, including incorporation into federal nutrition programs; however more evaluation of these efforts is needed. Therefore, the purpose of this project, conducted by Partnership for a Healthier America and Altarum, was to implement and evaluate a three-month fresh produce incentive offered through a national online ordering platform to families with lower incomes. 

Participants were recruited from four U.S. cities through community partners and received $60 each month for three months to purchase fresh produce through an online ordering platform. Participants who opted to participate in the evaluation were sent online surveys at baseline and post and gave permission to access sales data through the online ordering platform. This program improved nutrition security among families with lower incomes and contributed knowledge to the field on purchasing patterns and user preferences concerning grocery online ordering/delivery. As these platforms become more accessible to families with lower incomes, it is important to consider preferences and usability in both program and policy implications.
