Food Banks SNAP
Area food banks are gearing up to pick up the slack left by a congressional vote that will eliminate 39-million dollars in SNAP assistance to needy families. Area food banks say it is a two-fold trickle down effect for them. Not only will they see more families utilizing the food bank, but now those same people will also be forced to go to soup kitchens and pantries, which also get food supplies from the area food banks. The hardest impact will be on children, some who already have too little food and receive extra assistance from the food banks, and the elderly, who are often forced to choose between medication and food. No democrats voted for the funding cuts, and 15 Republicans voted against it…President Obama says he plans to veto the measure (CC)
