This study explores those variables that shape (a) awareness of nutrition programs and (b) actual use of nutrition programs among a sample of rural elderly in New York State. Evidence indicates that program awareness is quite high and that, compared with evidence from New York State as a whole, program use IS rather high. Those factors shaping both program awareness and use are identified. Then, policy implications are discussed.
