New Geographic Market: To effectively implement the EatSF Los Angeles pilot, EatSF conduced discovery interviews with government, community, and agency stakeholders and completed detailed neighborhood assessments to determine pilot location and community partners. Voucher distribution sites and participating vendors will then be assessed and trained, followed by implementation of the pilot. Regular follow-ups will be conducted, as well as pre- and post-pilot data collection.
Technology Enhancements: EatSF has begun testing new delivery methods using a human–centered design framework including electronic vouchers and mobile coupons. They will also design and implement a web-based platform for program enrollment and voucher tracking.
Outcome Evaluation: To determine the effect of EatSF vouchers on long-term eating habits, EatSF is conducting surveys with former participants (6-12 months after program completion) to measure fruit and vegetable intake, food security, and shopping pattern changes.
