SNAP Federal emergency allotments set to expire in February 2023 — What that means for NJ residents.

New Jersey residents enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) will soon see a change in their benefits as emergency federal allotments expire in February 2023, according to officials.

Throughout the COVID pandemic, SNAP households received higher monthly food assistance. Beginning in March 2023, enrolled New Jersey households will only get their regular SNAP payments.

Gov. Phil Murphy in June signed legislation to set the minimum SNAP benefit to at least $50 a month. New Jersey is the first state to set a minimum benefit, officials said.

When SNAP doesn’t quite add up to help our community members afford basic needs, together we fill the need for nutritious meals through the Client Choice Pantry. Thank you for enabling us to continually stock wholesome grocery options for our neighbors!
