About 25 million people will get a boost in their food stamp allocations this month.

The Biden Administration says it's part of an executive order adding a billion dollars to the program each month.

It will go to recipients left out of an increase Congress approved last year.

The pandemic has caused a hunger crisis in the U.S. with millions more people applying for food stamps.
