SNAP recipients will see a cut in food benefits starting this month

During the pandemic, Texans received extra money on their Lone Star cards through the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, also known as food stamps. That extra money ends this month.

Central Texas Food Bank volunteers carry boxes of food donations to waiting vehicles at Del Valle High School in Del Valle on Jan. 23, 2021. Roughly 700 families were served by the food drive in the first hour and a half.
