Summary of Collection: The National Agricultural Library's Food Stamp Nutrition Connection (FSNC) http://www.nal.usda.gov/foodstamp/ resource system has developed an on-line recipe database, the Recipe Finder, as an added feature to the FSNC Web site to be launched in the fiscal year 2005. The purpose of the recipe data base is to provide our target audience, Food Stamp Program nutrition educators, with low-cost, easy to prepare, healthy recipes for classes and demonstrations Start Printed Page 28270with Food Stamp Program participants. We rely on these same educators to submit their best recipes to us for review, analysis and posting in the database. Data collected using the “FSNC Recipe Review Form” will help identify the success or value of the nutrition education and budgeting tool with Food Stamp Program participants.
Need and Use of the Information: Food Stamp Program nutrition educators have the opportunity to submit recipes on-line saving the authors time while providing a fast and accurate vehicle in which to communicate with the authors. At the same time, submitted recipes will be reviewed for the purposes of ensuring that only high quality information remains in the database. The information will be collected electronically.
