30,000 New Mexicans could be impacted by new SNAP benefit rule
July 27, 2020
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. —A new SNAP rule could impact 30,000 New Mexican’s ability to put food on the table for their families.
“Everyone should have access to food. It's important for all of us regardless of who we are or where we come from. You shouldn't go hungry. Period,” said Christy Chapman, with the Native American Budget and Policy Institute.
The rule limits unemployed adults to just three months of food assistance in a three-year period and ties those benefits to jobs.
