SMITHSBURG, MD News (3/10/2023) – Recently, federal food assistance programs decreased recipients’ benefit amounts to pre-pandemic amounts. For years, recipients had been receiving an extra amount to help families have access to nutritious food during the Covid-19 pandemic. Beginning in March 2023, many households received hundreds of dollars less than their previous allotment of SNAP benefits, and unfortunately, this comes at a time when inflation and other factors have sent grocery prices ever climbing. More and more families are turning to food banks and other community outreach programs to make sure that their families have food. The good news is, members of our community, like The Artist’s Pallette Hair Salon and Gallery are stepping up to help!
