"Effective March 1, 2009, the regulations expanded categorical eligibility, which could have contributed to an increase from that point forward," Karen Garber, spokeswoman for Nassau County's Department of Social Services, wrote in an email.
Garber said the department does not differentiate between children and adults, counting only individuals who receive SNAP. In 2007, she said 28,288 individuals in Nassau County received SNAP; by the end of 2014, 66,130 individuals received the food assistance benefit.
