There are more food stamp users here in Oregon than any other state, according to last year's Census.

Almost 20 percent of families here in Oregon receive help from the government, about 1 in 5 families.

This follows a recent change in eligibility for food stamps.
Other states with high food stamp rates include Michigan and Tennessee.
