FoodData Central

    Several USDA food composition databases, including the Food and Nutrient Database for Dietary Studies (FNDDS), Standard Reference (SR) Legacy, and the USDA Branded Food Products Database, have transitioned to FoodData Central, a new and harmonized USDA food and nutrient data system. FoodData Central will also include expanded nutrient content information never before available, as well as links to diverse data sources that offer related agricultural, food, health, dietary supplement, and other information.

    2019 Farm to School Census v2

      In Fall of 2019 the USDA Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) conducted the third Farm to School Census. The 2019 Census was sent via email to 18,832 school food authorities (SFAs) including all public, private, and charter SFAs, as well as residential care institutions, participating in the National School Lunch Program. The questionnaire collected data on local food purchasing, edible school gardens, other farm to school activities and policies, and evidence of economic and nutritional impacts of participating in farm to school activities.

              Upper Washita River Experimental Watersheds: Nutrient Water Quality Data

              NAL Geospatial Catalog
                Climate variability, changing land use and management, and dynamic policy environments are the main reasons why long-term water quality data sets are needed to understand and predict possible water quality outcomes to alternative future scenarios. Such data sets were acquired by the USDA-ARS in three watersheds in Oklahoma: the Southern Great Plains Research Watershed (SGPRW), the Little Washita River Experimental Watershed (LWREW), and the Fort Cobb Reservoir Experimental Watershed (FCREW).
