Food Stamp Nation: What a Modern Day Bread Line Looks Like (Infographic)

With digital technology being used for all manner of government distributions, it’s difficult to overtly distinguish between the severity of the Great Depression of the 1930′s and today’s economic crisis.

But just because we don’t see thousands of hungry people lined up for hours at a time at their local soup kitchen today doesn’t mean the lines don’t exist.

Today bread lines have been removed with the help of technology; EBT cards are filled with Government money for Food Stamp participants to purchase food at local retailers.

If all EBT recipients shopped at only Walmart Super Centers for ALL their SNAP benefits, then this is how the Bread Line would look each month– 14,588 people.

The Deceptive B.

Thanks for this post.

Yup. Absolutely.

And now you know why I often tell my relatives that no matter what, as in most human affairs, in the wrong hands :

"good" technology can ALSO be a (very) deceptive b*tch.

And by that I usually don't refer to merely annoying software bugs. At all.
