A profile of food stamp recipients: Grim - UPI.com
I think some of the stats will suprise a few people
With the claims of illegal immigrants abusing US social sercives I am suprised that the vast majority of people on food stamps were/are US born citizensThe U.S. Department of Agriculture said Monday that seven of 10 food stamp recipients had no income in 2010.
For the year, 19 million households relied on food stamps for at least part of the year. A total of 40 million people used food stamps during the year.
Of those who received food stamps, 35.7 percent were white, while 22 percent were African American and 10 percent were Hispanic.
The vast majority, 94 percent, were U.S.-born citizens, the newspaper said.
