Reclaims unused federal tax dollars.
Over $6 billion in SNAP benefits went unclaimed in 2006 as a result of nonparticipation.

Increases the number of farm jobs.
Every $1 billion in retail food demand generates 3,300 farm jobs.

Provides an immediate economic stimulus to state and local economies.
Every $1 of accessed SNAP benefits generates an additional $1.84 of economic activity.
