Conservative media often rush to baselessly condemn those receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, also known as food stamps, as lazy or taking advantage of the system, but the truth is that these programs help feed millions of Americans who would otherwise go hungry.

In 2013, Fox News shamelessly promoted “blissfully jobless California surfer” Jason Greenslate as the “new face of food stamps,” and in April the network again attacked the program by portraying a couple living in a yacht and fraudulently collecting benefits as representative of the norm.

But these attacks are out of touch with the reality that almost 41% of recipients live in a household with earnings, and according to the USDA program fraud is below one cent on the dollar.

Feeding America’s report on the county and congressional district level food insecurity and county food costs in the United States paints a startlingly different picture of the food insecure than the one the right-wing media typically pushes. Feeding America found that more than 49 million people in the United States are food-insecure, meaning that they have “limited or uncertain access to adequate food,” and that 16 million of those people are children. On average, about 71% of the food-insecure throughout the country fall below 185% of the poverty line, making them eligible to receive SNAP benefits.
