The latest information on SNAP/ Food Stamp advocacy in Massachusetts.
We need your help TODAY. The U.S. Senate released a COVID-19 package totally unacceptable to address the needs of states and localities, including NO funding to boost SNAP.
Call MA Delegation today: See FRAC alert BELOW. Please call, tweet and email your member of Congress today to #BoostSNAPnow. Please also send a LTE to your local media outlet and get vocal on social media!
This Massachusetts data reinforces how dire the need is to #BoostSNAPnow:
DTA has kindly shared updated data on the number of P-EBT cards (individual cards issued to children) in all MA cities and towns. Most eligible families were issued nearly $399 in total P-EBT benefits, either on their DTA EBT cards or through the P-EBT card mailed to families. DTA sent an email yesterday to SNAP partners with important information to remind families about P-EBT, see attached PDF.
