The State of SNAP
SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) is facing a major cut from the current administration. Under this proposal, 3.1 million people could lose their SNAP benefits due to the administration cutting the “broad based categorical eligibility” policy—including Nourishing Hope clients. One client, Meredith*, has a part-time job and works hard to support her family of four. Meredith and her husband (who also works) rely on their SNAP benefits to help feed their two children.
