Food Stamps Reach An All-Time Record

Food Stamps Reach An All-Time Record40.8 Million Americans are now participating in the food stamp program.

Here in Florida, it’s now called Food Assistance Program (FAP). We’re seeing the increased need in our Benefits Connection team. Last year we generated $14 million in annualized food stamps for Central Floridians. In July, we served more individuals than ever before and the demand is continuing to grow.
