SNAP Loses Funding for the Poor
Last month, for the first time in its history, cuts were made across America to the food-stamp program known as SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program).
Pennsylvania's program has lost $183 million; for families and food banks, the impact can be felt most around the holidays.
Catherine Buhrig, Division Director in the Bureau of Policy for the PA Department of Public Welfare and Ken Regal, executive director of Just Harvest, educate people and help them apply for SNAP benefits.
Buhrig sees firsthand the significance of these cuts to those families that live under the poverty line.
