Interrupting the Myth of Who is on Food Stamps


Misconceptions about who receives food stamps mirror the same tired stereotypes of what poverty looks like, complete with ideas about who “deserves” assistance, and who is deemed as undeserving.

Who is on food stamps?

Single parents, military families, veterans, the unemployed, the under-employed, seasonal employees, adjunct professors, graduate students, college students, freelance writers, etc.

If your first reaction to hearing about food stamps is to grumble about your tax dollars, try shifting some of that energy into asking how we can reverse the economic machine that has destroyed our middle class.
