Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Even as the United States economy improves, millions of Americans still use food stamps.

November figures from the U.S. Department of Agriculture show more than 43 million Americans are still receiving food stamps.  Those are the most recent numbers available.

The number of people receiving food stamps was up 14.2% over the year before.

And in Washington, D.C. and Mississippi, more than one-fifth of the population received food stamps.
