In 1964 United States by the Food Stamp Act of 1964 have re-established the Food Stamp Program intended to provide food-purchasing assistance for low- and no-income people living in the U.S. In 2008 the program was renamed as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). As of 2014, 46.5 million Americans or 14.6% of resident population* were receiving SNAP benefits (monthly average).  The average SNAP client received a monthly benefit of $125.35. Total program cost has exceeded 74 billion dollars.

SNAP is the largest food assistance program in the country, reaching more poor individuals over the course of a year than any other public assistance program. Unlike many other public assistance programs, SNAP has few categorical requirements for eligibility, such as the presence of children, elderly, or disabled individuals in a household. As a result, the program offers assistance to a large and diverse population of needy persons, many of whom are not eligible for other forms of assistance. SNAP participation is closely related to unemployment and poverty levels. Since the beginning of recession in the US in 2008-2009 the number of people receiving SNAP benefits has increased dramatically. Only in 2014 it showed some decline.
