Student Participation in the Food Stamp Program at Six Selected Universities. Report to the House Committee on Agriculture by the Comptroller General of the United States.
Comptroller General of the U.S., Washington, DC.
Data were gathered on the number of college students receiving food stamps as heads of households at six selected universities: Tampa, Wisconsin, North Texas State, Pennsylvania, San Francisco State, and Portland. The percent of full-time students from the selected schools receiving food stamps as heads of households in the project areas reviewed ranged from less than one-half of one percent for North Texas State to over 13 percent for San Francisco State. Of the 224 student food stamp recipients in the sample, 147 (66 percent) were single-member households--the food stamp household consisted of only the student. In each of 63 cases, the student and other family members formed the household. In each of the remaining 14 cases, the food stamp household comprised the student and either one or two other students or friends. (Author/LBH)
