Paul Schweid: The need to expand SNAP benefits

Published: 5/25/2020 3:00:19 PM

When 30% of Americans are standing in food lines at food pantries and shelters and children that were receiving breakfast and lunch at school with the schools now closed aren’t receiving them, now is the time to expand SNAP and food benefits to all needy Americans.

This is not a political or bipartisan issue; this is a citizen and humanitarian issue. The president and Congress need to get behind this now.
