Food for the Hungry: The Reluctant Society. Policy Studies in Employment and Welfare Number 4.
Segal, Judith A.
This book offers a concise description and critique of the government's program to feed needy families. It is suggested that food programs have failed for two basic reasons: (1) they have been designed to meet the needs of food producers; and, (2) they have been administered to please a public anxious to deny help to the "unworthy poor." It is concluded that the elimination of both hunger and poverty can best be accomplished by increasing the cash income of poor households. (Author/DM)
