The loss of the ability to buy a week’s worth of meals. 

That was the impact for at least 328,000 people – and likely far more – in our region when the pandemic-era additional SNAP benefits expired in March. Since then, our partner organizations have reported increases in the clients coming through their doors, as well as seeing former clients return to again seek food assistance.  

One client shared with us that she now must space out her purchases of meats, fresh produce and eggs; ration meals; and seek more support from a local food pantry.
