Abstract
The study provides additional evidence of the association between participation in SNAP and lower levels of food insecurity. Participating for 6 months was associated with a decrease in food insecurity of about 5 to 10 percentage points. SNAP was associated with lower percentages of households that were food insecure, that experienced very low food security, and in which children were food insecure. This finding was true across most differences in household composition, income, and benefit levels.
