The government’s Supplement Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, helps nearly 15% of the entire U.S. population gain adequate access to food. Additionally, 76% of SNAP households include a child, or elderly person. The fact of the matter is when we’re talking about food stamps, and SNAP we are talking about families. With the recent recession, enrollment has continued to increase. As the number of unemployed people increased by 94% from 2007 to 2011, SNAP enrollment increased by 70% during the same period.

Receiving help from the government in the form of SNAP, and food stamps may not be ideal, but for many it can prove to be the temporary aid they need to get back on their feet. As the effects from the recession start to improve, the enrollment in SNAP should also decrease; as these figures are historically linked. It’s also been noted that for every $1 in SNAP benefits, $1.83 is generated in economic activity, per Moody’s Economist Mark Zandi.

There are a lot of common misconceptions surrounding food stamps, and SNAP, but the truth is that without it many children would be without food, about 17 million children in America curently don’t have adequate access to food.
