Household Food Security and SNAP

https://www.census.gov/newsroom/cspan/hh_food_security_snap/

“Mark Nord, a sociologist in the Food Assistance Branch at the Economic Research Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, discusses data that show about 47 million Americans (1 in 7) get assistance from food stamps, now called SNAP (the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). The 80 percent increase since 2007 reflects higher food insecurity and unemployment in the wake of the recession.”–From the C-SPAN’S America By The Numbers, U. S. Census web page.  Data, information, statistics here on the SNAP program.
