CWN Editor's Note: SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) is the federal government’s food assistance program. “Tell Congress to prioritize SNAP in the next COVID-19 relief bill by increasing the maximum SNAP benefit amount by 15%, increasing the minimum SNAP benefit amount, which is currently only $16, [and] suspending all SNAP rule changes that limit eligibility and benefits,” the US Conference of Catholic Bishops said in an action alert.
