    Study: In US, 90 percent of black children will be fed by food stamps

    Tuesday, Nov 3rd, 2009

    Nearly half of all US children, including an overwhelming majority of black children, will eat meals at some point during their childhood paid for by food stamps, an indicator of poverty, a study showed Monday.

    “If you get food stamps, you are by definition in poverty and your household doesn’t have many assets,” said Mark Rank, a co-author of the study with Thomas Hirschl of Cornell University.

    “The fact that half of American children at some time during their childhood find themselves in this position really ought to be a wake-up call to America,” he told AFP.

    The study found that 49.2 percent of all American children will at some point live in a home that receives food stamps.

    Half of Our Kids on Food Stamps

    A new study finds that nearly half of all American children will need to use the federal food stamp program to eat at some point in their childhood, with the number much higher for African American children, at a startling 90 percent. And the current recession with persistently high unemployment rates, will cause the numbers of children on food stamps to rise even higher, say researchers.

    The researchers, Mark R. Rank, PhD of the George Warren Brown School of Social Work, Washington University, St Louis, Missouri and Thomas A. Hirschl, PhD of the Department of Development Sociology, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York used thirty years of longitudinal data from the Panel Study of Income Dynamics survey.

    The study concluded that:

    “American children are at a high risk of encountering a spell during which their families are in poverty and food insecure as indicated through their use of food stamps. Such events have the potential to seriously jeopardize a child’s overall health.”

    The alarming results showed that between the ages of 1 to 20 years, nearly half (49.2%) of all U.S. children will live in a household that receives food stamps. Broken down by race, 37 percent of white children use food stamps, compared to a whopping 90 percent of black children.
