This booklet, which describes federal food assistance programs, is designed to help large families, families on small budgets, and elderly people on fixed incomes get more food for less money. The book is divided into four chapters: Kids, Women and Children, Families, and Senior Citizens. Each chapter describes in detail the food assistance programs available, and provides explicit information on how the programs work, who is eligible, and how and where to apply. Appendices contain school lunch and breakfast guidelines, a sample application form, and addresses of community groups and advocacy organizations which can be contacted for additional information on federal food assistance programs.
