Federal Food and Commodity Program Related Orders and Receipts 1939-1941 Food order and cotton order stamps were the result of programs designed to broaden certain farm markets and provide subsidies to low-income consumers. They operated in similar fashion. Welfare recipients buying orange stamps at face value were eligible for free blue stamps for half the amount spent. The programs were introduced by the Federal Surplus Commodities Corporation in 1939, and carried on by the US Department of Agriculture in 1940 and 1941. This group includes two 25¢ Cotton Orders printed in black and green (Specimen), one 5¢ Credit Receipt for food stamps, and two 25¢ Surplus Food Orders printed in blue and red.
