The U.S. Department of Agriculture has extended the Pandemic Food Stamp/Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (P-SNAP) through August.

What this means for SNAP recipients is that their households will again automatically receive the maximum benefit amount for their household size loaded onto their Electronic Benefit Transfer card.

P-SNAP is available during states of emergency, according to a Missouri Department of Social Services news release.

As of June 30, there are 372,799 Missouri households (including 773,079 people) receiving SNAP benefits.
