National SNAP Benefits Face Big Cut’s

National SNAP Benefits Face Big Cut’s
August 13, 2010 No Comments Archives Hunger Coalition

The United States Senate has made cuts to funding for the national SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), formerly known as Food Stamps.

The funding cuts were considered just earlier last week and the decided amount to be cut is 12 billion. Instead of maintaining this amount of SNAP funding the Senate has passed two bills which will be funded using the funds made available by cutting back on the  currently available SNAP support.

One of these newly passed bills is for the Child Nutrition Re-authorization, and another bill will help school teachers throughout the nation.
