Kentucky Economic Watch: SNAP Participation Continues to Increase in Kentucky

Despite the fact that the recession is officially over, participation in the Supplemental Food Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) in Kentucky continues to climb. The number of people participating in the program peaked again in June 2011 after also increasing in May. In June, more than 831,000 Kentuckians relied on this program to feed their families, an increase of more than 6,000 from May 2011.

About 20 percent of Kentucky children are food insecure.
