Starting Oct. 1, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) will be giving recipients a large increase in benefits that Kristin Seefeldt, associate professor of social work and public policy, says will help those most in need. 

“We’ve all heard about and probably felt in our own pocketbooks the increase in grocery prices," she said. "So, this will make a huge impact on families with lower incomes who are really feeling the brunt of this pandemic-induced inflation.”
