Economy Loses if Retailer Partnership is Replaced with Ration Box for SNAP
The President’s Budget included
a provision in SNAP that would replace the existing retailer electronic
distribution of benefits for 50% of the benefits over $90 per month with a
“ration box” of USDA staple shelf-stable foods. In addition, the White
House has requested $30 million for a pilot project on the topic.
Obviously, this would have an extremely negative impact on the economy and our
customers. We need you to weigh in against this concept and against a
pilot. Click the "take action" button below to access and send a draft letter to Congress. Feel free to edit if you wish and add your own examples.
