Abstract:
Describes the impacts of the San Diego Food Stamp Cash-Out Demonstration undertaken by the FNS on the food-purchasing and food-use patterns of Food Stamp Program recipients. Under the demonstration, food stamp recipients receive their program benefits as checks, rather than as the traditional food coupons. The demonstration was conducted in order to provide information regarding the desirability of one form of benefit over the other.
