On average, about 22.9 million people living in 9.5 million households received food stamps in the United States each month in fiscal year 1997. Food stamp households are a diverse group. Because food stamps are available to most low-income households with few resources, regardless of age, disability status, or family structure, recipients represent a broad cross-section of the nation's poor.
