Connect & Explore—America’s Eating Habits: Food Away from Home

July 24, 2018, 2:00 – 3:00 pm EDT

On July 24, the National Collaborative on Childhood Obesity Research (NCCOR) will host a Connect & Explore webinar titled, “America’s Eating Habits: Food Away From Home.”

Food away from home (FAFH) plays a major role in the American diet. In recent decades, numerous factors have contributed to an increasing trend of FAFH consumption such as increased access and affordability to FAFH and an increase in two earner households. To better understand this trend, USDA’s Economic Research Service (ERS) has drawn on data from many sources to examine a range of factors influencing FAFH consumption, and the findings will be published in the forthcoming report, America’s Eating Habits: Food Away From Home.

The webinar will provide background and rationale for the research endeavor, highlight several findings from the report, and discuss the experience of undertaking this collaborative research effort.
