    The 3rd stimulus bill recently signed into law didn't just include an additional stimulus check for most Americans. In addition to that (and a number of other things) it also included an extension of a 15% increase in monthly Food Stamp benefits through September, 2021. That averages out to an additional $25/month per person in a household, which would add up to an extra $100/month for a family of four.

    I'm really happy our leaders included this provision in the bill because it will hopefully help ease the burden of millions of Americans worrying about having enough food on the table.

    Additionally, if you are currently struggling to put food on the table and don't have food stamps then it can't hurt to apply for food stamps. It's free to apply and you will find out if you qualify in a matter of hours or days.

    Yeah we get so much attention on the stimulus checks that people completely miss the other stuff in these relief bills that honestly have more impact on those most hurting right now. This is a prime example.

    Agreed. Makes me wonder what other stuff that has been overlooked.
