A longtime school teacher, Loree has experienced the toll felt by many struggling due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With prices for useful grocery store items much higher than they were a year ago, she needs to be even more cautions with her benefits from the SNAP program. While also caring for her 97-year-old mother, she finds unique ways to make it to the end of each month.


Dianne summarizes the difference benefits through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) make in her life very simply: “Without SNAP, I wouldn’t be able to eat,” she says. With medical issues, she has also moved in with her mother in an effort to save expenses in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Read her full story here.


Dawn has dietary restrictions that make it difficult to purchase what she needs while living on a fixed income. Even while receiving benefits through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), she struggles to fill her nutritional needs. Read here about all that she needs to do to live as healthy of a life as she can.


Tammy Benjamin has spent the majority of her life purchasing groceries on a tight budget and today, now with 10 grandchildren, is no different. Unable to work, she receives disability payments and benefits through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). On a fixed income, the SNAP program allows her the means to make it to the end of each month.


Sonny has a list of medical conditions few people would envy. Her disabilities allow her $45 a month in Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits. But despite the benefits and visiting local food pantries, she finds it difficult to pay all her bills at the end of each month and lives in constant fear that one day her electricity will be shut off. A little additional help through SNAP would make a big difference.
