Median Monthly Income and Average Monthly Price of Food for SNAP Recipients
(by city)

Hypothetical food bills for a family of three were calculated using the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Quarterly Food-at-home Price Database. Regional prices for food categories were multiplied to the quantities recommended in the USDA's Thrifty Food Plan and summed. Average SNAP benefits were calculated by dividing the total amount of benefit expenditures for a city by that city's number of recipient households; U.S. Department of Agriculture, Quarterly Food-at-home Price Database, 2010; U.S. Department of Agriculture, Thrifty Food Plan 2006; U.S. Census Bureau, 2010 American Community Survey 1-year Estimates; New York Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance, Temporary and Disability Assistance Statistics, December 2010; California Department of Social Services, Food Stamp Program Participation and Benefit Issuance Report, August 2011; Maryland Department of Human Resources, Statistical Report 2010; Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare, SNAP Statsitics November 2010; Texas Health and Human Services Commission, Monthly SNAP Food Benefit Cases and Recipients by County, December 2010; Illinois Department of Human Services, SNAP Data by Person—Year 2010.
