Nudges, or environmental cues such as signage, colors, packaging and product placement, have been identified as factors that influence consumer choice. The Feeding America Nutrition Nudge Research study, conducted by a team of research experts led by Dr. David Just of Cornell University and the Feeding America Community Health and Nutrition team, explored the potential of nudge interventions to increase the distribution of Foods to Encourage (F2E) to clients in a food pantry setting, and to learn food banks’ and food pantries’ perspectives on their operations and service delivery of nutrition education and F2E.
