On November 1, a $5 billion cut to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) in the US took place when a temporary increase in food stamp dollar expired.
A household of three lost $29 in food aid per month as a result of the cuts that left each person to spend an average of $1.40 per meal.
Meanwhile, US lawmakers are set to pass a new multi-year farm bill that would cut $9 billion in funding for the food stamp program over the next ten years. PressTV
