Millions of Americans have been benefitting from the emergency food stamps states have given out since the pandemic began.
Now, some states are giving the boost again for the month of May.
The emergency allotments started going out when the pandemic began, and now food has become more expensive.
They’ve been extended many times since then.
Just last week they were extended 90 more days after the latest expiration date, which was set for April 15.
States still giving emergency food stamps can now do so in May.
The minimum amount families can expect is $95.
Some states have entirely phased out the emergency benefits, including Nebraska and Tennessee.
