46,496,145: Food Stamp Recipients Could Fill Yankee Stadium 925 Times

A better comparison would have been an NBA Arena or NFL Stadium.
Via CNS News
In June 2014, there were 46,496,145 recipients of the food stamp program, which is enough to fill the Yankee Stadium 925 times, according to data from the Department of Agriculture (USDA).
The Yankee Stadium is equipped to hold 50,291 persons, meaning that the 46,496,145 Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) recipients in June 2014 could fill the stadium 925 times. The number of recipients was up 270,999 since the previous month in May 2014 when there were 46,225,146 individuals participating in the program.
Thank You CNS and Dapandico.
