Overall enrollment in the nations food stamp program has dipped to its lowest level in eight years, according to the latest statistics released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
The latest USDA data reveals that enrollment in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)the federal government program that administers food stampsdropped to 40,083,954 in March 2018.
The last time enrollment in the food stamp program reached that level was February 2010, when 39,588,993 people participated in the nations food stamp program.
Although overall enrollment has reached its lowest point in eight years, food stamp enrollment has been declining steadily since 2013 and has only continued throughout President Trumps first year in office.
Under Trump, 2.2 million fewer people have discontinued their participation in SNAP, mainly due to the Trump administrations attempts to reform SNAP by controlling program costs at the federal and state levels.

Good news. Now only 40,083,954 left to go.
And it reached it’s highest during the 0 years. Funny how you take away the ability to buy beer and cigs with your EBT and suddenly work doesn’t seem so bad.
But is Lobster Boy, the San Diego stoner surfer, still receiving taxpayer money? A followup story is needed.
This will be spun as Trump’s plan to starve minorities, even though it’s racist to suggest more minorities use food stamps. Only a liberal can grasp contradictory concepts comfortably.
Guess American peons as per Pelosi are eating the crumbs from their lower taxes. So they don’t need Food Stamps/EBT cards.
Trump’s fault again.
See? See? SEE! Trump is starving the poor! < /sarc >
Some MSNBC snowflake will come up with this one... watch for it.
40,083,954 is too high..........................
Yep!...........I don’t know the exact percentages, but I’d bet that 70% +/-10% are white...................
Obama .... the food stamp president.
Just backs up what we all see with our own eyes. The Obama economy was AWFUL. The Trump economy is booming.
That's because they have developed the "Cognitive Dissonance" lobe in their brain housing group.
With Blacks being 12% of the country, they are at a disproportionally higher percentage.
Indeed. Outside of New York City, the Los Angeles area, the San Francisco Bay Area and Seattle, the US economy was failing under Obama. Now, Trump is turning the rest of the country around.
Liberals put the “moron” in oxymorons
