Food Stamps To Get Overhaul In Trump’s Budget

President Donald Trump’s new fiscal year 2019 budget includes a radical proposed change to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, typically referred to as food stamps. The plan would see part of the program turn into a meal delivery service.
As part of the budget, the Department of Agriculture would send basic food items to households receiving more than $90 a month in SNAP assistance in boxes. The Department of Agriculture runs the SNAP program.
The budget reads, “Under the proposal, households receiving $90 or more per month in SNAP benefits will receive a portion of their benefits in the form of a USDA Foods package, which would include items such as shelf-stable milk, ready to eat cereals, pasta, peanut butter, beans and canned fruit, vegetables, and meat, poultry or fish.”
According to the budget, this and other reforms would cut just over $200 billion from the SNAP program compared to the current baseline over the next 10 years.
