A 2013 study, Measuring the Effect of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Participation on Food Security, found that participating in SNAP for 6 months was associated with a decrease in food insecurity by about 5 to 10 percentage points, including households with food insecurity among children. This study used data from the SNAP Food Security (SNAPFS) survey collected from October 2011 through February 2012. A total of 9,811 households were interviewed in 30 States.
