Abstract: Effects of the 2013 Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefit cut on food security is examined by employing the annual Current Population Survey Food Security Supplement 2012–2014. Food security measured in December 2014 is compared with the corresponding statistics for December 2012 using difference-in-differences methods. Results confirm that reduced SNAP benefits significantly threatened the food security of SNAP households.
