In 2014 Abt Associates kicks off a year-long commemoration of the company’s founding in January 1965. That year Clark Abt brought together 30 scientists, engineers, and educators to create a new kind of company that used interdisciplinary social science research to solve social, economic, and technological problems.

U.S. food security programs help millions of low-income Americans avoid hunger. Abt is helping to improve these programs by evaluating healthy eating interventions that provided nutritious snacks in schools, additional dollars to buy food outside of school, and incentives to buy healthier food.
