The latest information on SNAP/ Food Stamp advocacy in Massachusetts.
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.
We also want to flag for you an excellent MassLive Editorial "Food benefits essential in coronaVirus aid package.".
We’ve got a number of updates, data from DTA, and info on tuning in tonight to watch speeches on the US Senate floor on the need to boost SNAP. And reminder, the next SNAP Coalition zoom meeting is Tuesday, July 7th at 10AM.
