SNAP Benefits Drops AS Pandemic Assistance Ends

More than 4 million Americans are seeing their monthly SNAP benefits drop this month, as federal pandemic assistance winds down.

The program’s Emergency Allotments (EAs) ended last month, dropping SNAP benefits by $90 per person on average, and as much as $250 for families.

Surging food prices due to inflation are making it even tougher for families who suddenly find themselves with less money to spend on groceries.

Should the government extend the pandemic EAs until inflation starts to slow down?
