Or the Ozarks, for that matter. Here's a county by county map circa 2009. Probably hasn't changed much since then.

Too many considering the price of MikyDeez and the number of unused possums on the roadway.

The NYT really knows how to put together maps using GIS to paint a pretty clear picture. This is one of the more depressing compilations for sure.

WOW. I don't even know what to say! I'm honestly surprised by a lot of the states.

Not surprising. Red states have always been high welfare states. Maine is a little surprising, but it is fairly rural.

There was a note at the bottom of the map saying Missouri enrolls a greater percentage of eligible people than any other state, 98%. By comparison, only half of Californians eligible for food stamps enroll. I doubt that there are Missouri government functionaries out there recruiting people for food stamps and I can't recall seeing ads encouraging people to get on them. Maybe other state governments are more efficient at refusing applications.

Along that line of thought, compare the colors along the Missouri-Arkansas border. A lot of people, myself included, think of that border as being somewhat fluid, that people on each side have more in common with each other than people in their own state but in a different part of the state...especially Missouri, but my father's family is from the El Dorado, Arkansas area, and that's different in culture from northern Arkansas. But the food stamp use looks dramatically different on either side of the state line.
