White House Report Highlights Benefits of SNAP

The White House recently released a report highlighting the impact of SNAP benefits on food insecurity and poverty.  

A few key findings included in the report:

  • Nearly 1 in 7 American households experienced food insecurity in 2014.
  • SNAP benefits lifted at least 4.7 million people out of poverty in 2014.
  • Research shows that reducing food insecurity though SNAP leads to significant improvements in health and well-being for children and adults.
  • Despite the substantial impact of SNAP benefits on reducing hunger, many SNAP households still reported experiencing low or very low food food security in 2014.
