Alaskan Families To Get Additional Food Money Under New SNAP Rules 



It looks like SNAP (Food Stamp) families will automatically be getting more money to feed their families – an average of around $36 more per person per month.

The U.S. Government says increased benefits are meant to cover the rising cost of food. The funds are also geared to trying to help people buy more nutritious fresh foods, which tend to be more expensive than canned. 

You should not have to apply for this "boost" in the SNAP benefits if you're already using SNAP. The program change began in October. Money is sent on an EBT card. 

There's a government site that lists stores in each part of the United States that take SNAP. On the site, the Department of Agriculture says that approved business near Glennallen are:

• Copper Valley IGA
• Tazlina River Trading Post (which is currently rebuilding
• Bush Bottle Bin 


NOTE FROM CRNA...
