The longest-ever government shutdown in US history is affecting residents of the Bronx in a very fundamental way....food assistance. Please see the useful information below shared by Catholic Charities:

How the government shutdown affects your EBT and food stamp (SNAP) benefits:

Three things to remember:
Most people will receive their February food stamp benefits early, around January 20th
If you get your benefits early, you will NOT receive more benefits in February, so make sure to budget carefully
You can use your EBT card normally throughout the shutdown
