The Hunger Cliff

June 22, 2023 12:00 pm

Many of our neighbors received a notice that their SNAP benefits would be cut, potentially by hundreds of dollars a month.

The notices signaled the coming end of a federal increase in food stamps that started in the early days of the pandemic, when unemployment spiked and lawmakers feared that hunger would, too, according to The New York Times.

This stress on food budgets is affecting many neighbors’ lives and Lunch Break is ready to respond by providing basic needs, life skills, social services, family counseling and housing solutions. We are equipping our community members with the tools to become self-sufficient and build generational equity. Thank you for continuing to support our mission to offer help for today and hope for tomorrow!
