SNAP helps 41 million people to eat well that is around 1 in 8 Americans, according to USDA.

SNAP is a federal scheme, but states implement it, therefore benefits are inconsistent across the sates.

Eligibility and the benefits levels are same across the nation except Alaska and Hawaii.

However, the calculation of benefits will change from one state to the other.

In New Hampshire, 6% of the public receives SNAP's $110 monthly benefit.

In Louisiana, 17% of the public gets SNAP, averaging around $135.

States with larger populations and more unemployment have more SNAP users.

The program's name varies by state. FoodShare in Wisconsin. CalFresh in California. Utah calls it Food Stamps.
