In the midst of the welfare reform revolution, Peter H. Rossi examines five major food assistance programs, whose combined annual budgets approach $40 billion. His comprehensive assessment of the research concerning the impact of these programs describes their historical origins, goals, and operations and then uses the best available research to assess their impact and effectiveness.

Peter H. Rossi is S.A. Rice Professor Emeritus of Sociobiology and director emeritus, Social and Demographic Research Institute, at the University of Massachusetts, at Amherst, and a faculty research associate at the Chapin Hall Center for Children, University of Chicago.
