Beckley Register-Herald, Kansas City Star, The Republic – About 350,000 West Virginians will see a reduction in federal food assistance benefits when a temporary boost expires this fall, according to a nonprofit policy research group. Read

The West Virginia Center on Budget and Policy said the increase to federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits expires on Oct. 31.

“This small increase in SNAP benefits has helped thousands of struggling families in West Virginia stay afloat during the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression,” said Ted Boettner, the center’s executive director. “For many of these families, this modest assistance is providing a lifeline to those who are struggling to find work, or are working at jobs that do not pay them enough to put food on the table.”
