Low-Income Women’s Experiences with Food Programs, Food Spending, and Food-Related Hardships: Evidence from Qualitative Data
Kristin S. Seefeldt (au); Tedi Castelli (au)
Examines the economic coping strategies of low-income families, using data collected through qualitative interviews conducted in 2006-08 with 35 low-income women residing in the Detroit metro area. The majority of the sample were employed at least some of the time, and most had children living with them. Rising food prices forced cutbacks in purchase of certain foods, incl. milk, cereal, fruits, and meat. Just under half reported running out of food at some point during the year. As for gov’t. assistance, the then named Food Stamp Program, now called the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, was their mainstay. Many of the families did not receive cash assistance, unemploy. benefits, or workers’ compensation due to perceived access barriers.
