    Food stamp use reaches another high in September: 47.7 million participants | The Daily Caller


    Food stamp use reaches another high in September: 47.7 million participants.

    The most recent data on SNAP participation were released Friday, and showed that 47,710,324 people were enrolled in the program in September, an increase of 607,559 from the 47,102,765 enrolled in August.

    The number of households enrolled in the program also increased from 22,684,463 in August to 22,973,698 in September, an increase of 289,235. The average benefit, according to the new data, was $134.29 per person and $278.89 per household.

    Texas, California, and Florida were the states with the most recipients, the Agriculture Department reported.

    The new numbers mean that an estimated one in 6.5 people in America were on food stamps in September

    We just keep on breaking records. We are moving forward thats for sure.....
