The partial government shutdown enters its third week as negotiating between President Donald Trump and Democrats continue.
However, if the shutdown exceeds into Feb., millions of Americans who receive benefits from the nation’s food stamp program could be affected, CBS News reports.
According to CBS News, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program is one of the agencies who will not receive funding during the partial shutdown.
SNAP has received $3 billion in emergency funds from Congress, but that will not cover all of Feb., CBS News reports.
SNAP will have absolutely zero funding if the shutdown surpasses Feb.
