Just in time for the holidays, the Trump Administration adopted the first of three new rules drastically cutting access to SNAP food assistance for low-income families. More than 700,000 will lose this aid immediately. Over 3 million will lose SNAP benefits if the other rules are adopted, and more than 5 million households will see nutrition assistance cut.
