Nationally, SNAP will be cutting 8.5 billion from the program by mainly changing the "Heat and Eat" program.


Scott Cooper, the head of Neighbor Impact says they knew the funding wouldn't continue at the same level as during the great recession.


"We should see some fall off in demand as the economic conditions improve.  Unfortunately, rural areas like in central Oregon recover slower than urban areas like Portland.  But at some point we need to slide back.  We can't continue at this level of investment forever."


To offset the cuts to the "Heat and Eat" program, the farm bill allocates at extra 200 millon to food banks to soften the blow.


In Oregon, the food bank expects to receive 54 million dollars less next year.
