Permanent increase in food stamps impacts 42.3 million people

SNAP, or food stamps, is seeing a permanent $36 dollar increase for recipients.

The program is run by the Department of Agriculture and the increase was in part helped by the Biden administration.

While $36 is the single largest permanent increase in SNAP benefits, the cost of inflation doesn’t allow it to make much of a difference.

While regular groceries sky rocket in price, they are also becoming increasingly harder to keep on the shelves.
