This study uses detailed food acquisition and purchase records and geographic indicators in the USDA’s National Household Food Acquisition and Purchase Survey (FoodAPS) to explore how local food prices are associated with food insecurity and diet quality among SNAP participants. Further, this study examines whether the effects of high food prices on either food insecurity or diet quality are improved by SNAP participants’ resource management techniques. The results indicate that higher food prices are positively associated with food insecurity only among the non-participants in SNAP. This study does not find any significant association between food prices and food insecurity among the SNAP participants. This study finds that higher food prices are associated with more vegetables and lower calories in the foods acquired by SNAP participants.
