NUHSA reports on The Hunger Cliff

Diners at Ronald Commons Cafe
From NUHSA (North Urban Human Services Association)

As of March 1, 2023 SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits have been cut back to the their pre-pandemic levels, and many users' monthly food budgets have been slashed close to $100. 

Food scarcity in Washington nearly tripled during the pandemic, so food banks - and clients - were feeling the pinch even before the cuts. Potential state proposals (including HB 1784) would not replace the lost benefits, but are only a stop-gap aimed at backfilling an anticipated rise in demand at food banks for the next year or two.
