Factors Affecting Food Away from Home: Are Food Secure and Food Insecure Households Different?
AbstractThe paper considers interaction among participation in the Food Stamp Program (FSP), food security status and food away from home expenditures. Current Population Survey-Food Security Supplement data and a Quadratic Almost Ideal Demand System with a bootstrapping two-step method are used. The results show that FSP participation is endogenously related with food security status and significantly affects total food expenditure. Food security status also has a significant effect on the likelihood of eating out and share of food away from home (FAFH) expenditures. The effects of FSP participation on FAFH are insignificant.
