The recent depression had an obvious effect upon all business, but in all possibility, the persons engaged in farming felt the catastrophe most keenly. The price of farm products became low and in many instances, the weather served to diminish the amount of products to be marketed. In a condition of this sort where there was little cash and few products to sell which would yield money returns. The farmer was made to realize the necessity of Living at Home. Living at Home reduces the needs for which money is needed and at the same time, it makes possible the spending of cash for the necessities which cannot be raised on the farm. In any time of economic stress, there is a corresponding period of ill health. It was to build better health as well as to relieve the economic tension that the Live at Home program was instituted. The health of rural people is as important as that of urbanites and therefore their interest in the Live at Home program is not local but national in scope. It is the purpose of this discussion to show the relationship of this program to the health of the rural families. Specific information will be used to show the improvement in the health of those persons who have been able to eat properly at home and a corresponding decrease in health among the families who have suffered because of inadequate food and lack of money to secure the same.
