SNAP

For Nancy, grocery shopping is all about research.

At 71, she is a Slingerlands resident who receives benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly called food stamps. To make the most of the $74 she gets monthly, she reads three circulars to find the best prices.

The cuts in food stamps have left local charities scrambling and some of our neighbors are hungry. We need to give what we can until the government realizes the cuts are poor economy.

To the Editor:

Congress should strengthen, not weaken, SNAP (the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program known as food stamps).

Tens of millions of Americans are hungry, forced to turn to emergency food programs, and food stamps (SNAP) to feed their families.
