SNAP benefits reduced
If you receive federal food assistance, you can expect smaller monthly benefits starting next week.
On November 1, the federal government is making cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, commonly known as SNAP or food stamps.
The cuts are happening because the stimulus package money used to pay for it ran out.
For a family of four receiving the maximum benefit, the cut will be about $36 per month.
