AbstractParticipation of the elderly in the food stamp program in 1977-78 and 1979-80 are studied using nationally representative and comparable samples. The impact of the elimination of the purchase requirements for the Food Stamp program and changes in other eligibility requirements are studied. Large increases in FSP participation are documented as are some of the factors, particularly social isolation, which are still associated with lowered participation.
