To find out how many people participate in the program in your area and how that number has changed since 2000, enter your ZIP code, city, or county and state....

Thank you, SG!
Comal County, TX?
Nah, I ain’t going to their website.
65,125 people are in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program in your county.
About 18 percent of people in your county are in the program.
That proportion has grown 170 percent since 2000.
The participants received $96,505,000 in benefits.
That’s $1,663 per person per year.
Or $139 per person per month.
ZERO. Nobody I know.
19% That proportion has grown 225 percent since 2000
I work/live in a blue state/county/city so mine didn’t surprise me one iota as this sh*thole city is full of Buttcrack odumbo voters.
Slate has my county at 27 percent, and my math, using 2012 population figures puts it at 28 percent, and they are all standing in line at Walmart.
Does not recognize Washington D.C..
My pleasure. What are you doing for your birthday? (I’m hijacking this thread. Ya can’t take me anywhere nice.)
22% here in Western MA. I would have thought it was higher.
6% sounds good to me. (Better than mine.)
This weekend is The One Year Anniversary!
The Bride and I are making it an annual thing, to return to the same beach where we were married and honeymooned.
Birthday plans, not sure yet, but I’ll enjoy just the same...
Allegheny County, PA: 157,000 + or 12% of the population, a 91% increase.
Somehow, I think the total may be more.
14%...up 500% since 2000
Is there a link to the site so we don’t have to give Salon hits?
There’s foodstamp recipients who fall into the category of people who need help, trough no fault of their own.
Then there’s the black high rollers, obama’s people, the usually 400-pound and larger lardballs.
Guess which ones will be cut?
I’m pretty sure the union guy up on the corner who weaseled is way onto disability is getting SNAP. Other than that, nobody I know.
Doesn’t recognize 20017, either. Hmmmm.
They're what, about 1% of the total number of recipients?
My County in Alabama includes the City of Birmingham — 16%. I thought it would be higher.
Many young parents living around me. 70-80%
Try entering the name of your county. Results are by county, not city.
Richland county here in SC works out the same percentage. I expected higher too.
Yeah, something like that. Meanwhile, we have seen that the SNAP resources are being repacked in containers and shipped to places like Kenya and elsewhere Obama has African family or allies.
Bingo. Only person I know who I honestly felt needed Food Stamps was a lady with five kids who lived next-door to us. She was a stay-at-home mom. Her husband was murdered. Not a lot of good options for her after that.
The other 98% are just looking for freebies.
The source is the USDA website which has been shut down. (Funny, I accessed it recently.)
Allegheny County must have more. I would think there were nearly 157,000 just within the City of Pittsburgh alone.
York Co., SC......14% up 192 %
My response was to fella re: post #10. Washington DC was not recognized. I tried by zip code, then by accessing additional data on USDA site where the tool was originally obtained. USDA site is currently down. I entered my zip and got the data for my county.
I got the same exact numbers for my county. Do you live in Florida?
There are 6,494 people on SNAP in my county, which is 18%. I’m actually surprised it is not higher. It is a 79% increase since 2000, but it is very noticeable that the biggest increases have occurred since 2008, until then it was pretty steady at about 8%-10%.
Why yes I do...Between G’ville and Ocala.
I don’t know that it would be selective. Suspect that the Extortionist-in-Chief wants to cause as much pain and chaos as possible. (Please give Mesta my best.)
Please note, I’m NOT one of them.
I did it for you. 8%. Better than my county.
too funny ... I’m close to CR318
Oh, it is. There’s a clear link. Apply for SNAP (or continuance), and you get Democrat voter reg forms.
It’s in the light of day, just as the link between Tea Party and getting rectal exams by the IRS.
Know it, we are neighbors:)
Los Angeles: 1,015,481... 9% of population.. up 44 %
Up 300-400% around here due to huge influx of illegals.
You can just as easy see all the nifty food-stamp population standing in the cash register line at any Wal-mart.
Wonder what the increase in SSI is.
15% in Maricopa County. If I am reading this right this has gone up 320% since the year 2000.
This means that one out of every five people I encounter in the grocery store are competing over the same groceries with MY MONEY. Remove these people from the consumer pool, and watch the price of groceries fall back to where they were before Obama took office. Heck, I might actually be able to afford meat again.
Every time I go to the market I see those card being swiped by everybody. Of course this is California.
