Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
As the biggest expenditure in the Farm Bill, SNAP is used by 46.5 million Americas (as of June 2014) of which 49% are children 18 and younger. It is estimated that only 75% of those eligible utilize the program. In addition to direct assistance, SNAP includes a few smaller programs, some of which are outlined here. The 2014 Farm Bill saw the program's funding being cut by $8.6 billion over the next 10 years, and was largely debated in Congress and the media.
