Real Stories of Hunger

Read Cindy's story about receiving SNAP assistance.

The last week of every month is always the hardest- I try to make our SNAP food assistance ($141) stretch, but it's difficult: My husband, who's 72 and hearing impaired, is on a restricted diet and the food he needs cost more. His SSI will go up by $22 iJan.12. 2015, but as you know, SNAP adjusts for that so we won't even notice the difference: That's a lousy way to treat disabled Vietnam Vets like my husband.

You can make a difference. Give today.
