A Meager Existence on Food Stamps

January 11, 2010 | The New York Times |  Link to article

A recent article in the New York Times safety net series focused on Americans who are living on nothing but food stamps. The article analyzed state data and reported that 6 million Americans receiving food stamps reported that they have no other income. The New York Times published reader responses to the article, including a letter to the editor by Elizabeth Lower-Basch noting the poor response of Temporary Assistance in the recession.
