More Americans Spend More Time in Food-Related Activities Than a Decade Ago
Amber Waves:The Economics of Food, Farming, Natural Resources, and Rural America, 2020, vol. April 2020, issue 03
An analysis of time use data by ERS researchers reveals that Americans age 15 and older, on average, spent 18 percent more time preparing food in 2014-17 than in 2004-07, and the gender disparity in preparing food and cleaning up afterwards lessened somewhat. The share of Americans who purchased non-grocery store food, such as from restaurants or school cafeterias, on an average day grew from 11.3 to 13.5 percent.
