1. This is a huge deal!

I have a good friend who's a fully disabled veteran who this means a lot to. The last 18 months have been the best for him in many years because of the increased food support and stimulus checks.

And extra $36 a month is the difference between a lot of people making it and not making it to the end of the month. People who live on SSI and food stamps, contrary to the image painted by some, are expert penny pinchers. They know where every dollar goes and usually have detailed budgets. This little bit is huge for many, seems like a small amount to you or I, but to people counting every last penny it gives them a little room to breathe.
