A hunger cliff is here.
Millions of people who rely on support from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) have seen their benefits drop – in many cases, dramatically.
As of March 1, 2023, all Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) participants have suffered cuts to their benefits each month as the temporary, pandemic-era SNAP boosts known as Emergency Allotments have come to an end.
Combined with soaring food prices and skyrocketing heating, transportation, and housing costs, our nation is facing a hunger cliff.

Note: Households affected and the total decrease in Emergency Allotments is based on most recent USDA FNS administrative waiver data.
