Find out about the emergency snap food stamp is coming tomorrow. Thousands of Americans in will get emergency food stamps tomorrow after the benefits were extended. More than 300,000 people in the state are eligible for additional support. Bosses at the Virginia Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) will send the benefits to households on February 16, according to WAVY. The food stamps will be loaded automatically onto Americans’ electronic benefit transfer cards. Virginians can apply for the benefits online via the state’s Department of Social Services portal. Virginia is not the only state providing extra assistance to cash-strapped Americans. New York governor Kathy Hochul revealed last week that beneficiaries will get an extra boost, known as a supplemental allotment. Around 1.6million New Yorkers are eligible for food stamps, and more than $2.5billion worth of supplemental benefits were distributed last year. The US Department of Agriculture announced revised nutrition guidelines for its Thrifty Food Plan (TFP), which boosted the average pre-pandemic amount of SNAP food stamp benefits. The amount claimants receive depends on the state that they live in, as well as their family size. SNAP food stamp households are expected to spend about 30 percent of their own resources on food.
