Abstract

Food purchases of food stamp and all other customers, including those eligible for but not participating in the Food Stamp Program, are compared. Both groups allocated greater proportions of their food purchases to meat, poultry, and fish than did USDA's Thrifty Food Plan. The food stamp and other groups allocated similar proportions of their food dollar among the various food product groups, although food stamp customers spent more per shopping trip for 22 of the 27 food products surveyed. Neither group bought foods giving them the greatest nutrition per dollar spent.
