Utah families on food stamps could be cut off soon
States across the country are being told to stop the supplemental nutrition assistance program for the month of November, pending further notice.
Thats according to a letter from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Fox 13 obtained a copy from the Crossroads Urban Center in downtown Salt Lake City. Crossroads says if Utah families dont get food stamps, theyll turn to the local food pantries, which are already strapped due to the government shutdown. Homeless people Fox 13 talked to, some who use SNAP, say losing food stamps would mean going hungry.
Thanks for sourcing the story.
And here’s the original posting of the letter by a local food bank:
I guess the kids would have to eat their school breaksfasts and lunches instead of throwing them in the trash.
As opposed to going looking for a job.
