Food Stamps: Expensive groceries may cause recipients to lose produce

Millions of Americans rely heavily on food stamps every month to get by and feed their families.

This has become even harder since the pandemic hit and inflation caused food prices to soar.

The highest increase since 2010 for produce was 2.3% in February.

All other products are seeing increases as well.

As inflation continues to rise, it makes it more difficult for families to budget for their groceries.

With produce seeing the biggest increase, many are opting to cut it out of their list.

Why food stamp recipients will continue to struggle

While food stamps are designed to help people, the inflation is causing more harm.

Recipients were given an additional $95 in emergency benefits at the start of the pandemic.

Almost two years later, they’re coming to an end.

This means families will revert to receiving regular benefits, but not be able to afford the same amount of food to get by.
