New York State established a Nutrition Surveillance Program (NSP) in 1984.
Precedents for the program included the Pediatric Nutrition Surveillance System of the Public Health Services Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and periodic food and nutrition surveys conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics and the Human Nutrition Information Service, Department of Agriculture.
The first phase of NSP was connected to a new program, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), which established support for more than 1, 000 emergency food programs across the State.
SNAP also expanded the home delivered meal program for the frail elderly and the Special Supplemental Food Program for Women, Infants, and Children.
