Under Trump, Food Stamp Use Dropped to Lowest in 8 Years

For the first time in nearly a decade, the number of households on food stamps dropped to below 20 million.

Apparently the winning continues under President Trump as the latest data released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture indicated that the number of households on food stamps in February 2018 dropped to 19,992,124. . .

This figure represent the first time the numbers have dropped below the 20 million mark since September 2010, when 19,979,385 households were enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, Breitbart reported. . .

The low level is not only a record in number of households but the number of people enrolled in food stamps has also declined. Overall food stamp enrollment decreased from 40,640,170 to 40,032,131 just from January to February 2018. . .

A record one in five American households were on food stamps in 2013, according to USDA data, which revealed that the numbers had increased to that 20 percent level under former President Obama. The cost of the SNAP program was also at an all-time high.
