Expenditures for USDA’s food assistance programs level off in 2015
Federal expenditures for USDA’s 15 food and nutrition assistance programs totaled $104.1 billion in fiscal 2015, or about the same as the previous fiscal year. This was about 5 percent lower than the historical high of $109.2 billion set in fiscal 2013. Expenditures decreased slightly for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and WIC in fiscal 2015, but increased by 5 percent for the School Breakfast Program and the Child and Adult Care Food Program, and by almost 3 percent for the National School Lunch Program.
