NSA - Nutrition Service and Administrative costs. Approximately two-thirds of total costs are used to provide nutrition education, breastfeeding promotion and support, and linkages to health and other client services (e.g., immunization; drug, alcohol and tobacco education; referrals to family and child health social programs). The remining third is used for traditional management functions.

The annual average food cost is the benefit per month.
