41.5 million Americans collect food stamps each month to help buy food for their families with an EBT card provided to them by the state.

The emergency food stamps started when the pandemic caused a financial strain for many already struggling people.

The emergency benefits were extended in January of this year amid inflation.

Most families were seeing an extra $100 per month.

The government has not announced another extension yet, but if they do not then it’s set to expire in April.

There are maximum amounts allowed for household sizes.

  • two: $459
  • three: $658
  • four: $835
  • five: $992
  • six: $1,190
