Working-age people now make up majority on food stamps
(KTVI) – More and more families are relying on food stamps. For the first time ever, working-age people now make up the majority of households that rely on food stamps. Just a few years ago children and the elderly were the main recipients.
Some of the change is due to demographics, such as the trend toward having fewer children. But, a slow economic recovery with high unemployment is also playing a big role.
