Food For Thought

A celebratory smoothie may be in order for those taxpayers opposed to the perceived use of food stamps by low income families. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) has undergone many changes over the years, but the latest proposal is one of the most beneficial and practical ideas ever presented. SNAP benefits can be used to purchase most food products found in grocery stores and are issued once per month according to household size and income limits.

As local produce markets began to accept the pre-loaded debit cards, consumers and lawmakers began to see the potential impact of making a slight change to the program. Since many low income communities do not have convenient access to fresh fruits and vegetables, they suffer from many avoidable diseases such as diabetes, obesity, and high blood pressure.  Citizens like Igor Cornelsen believe the changes can help people in lower-income families make healthier choices for their children and themselves.

  1. Local produce markets in Maryland suburbs have already begun implementing the program in an effort to encourage responsible spending and healthy eating habits. The new SNAP annotations would give users double impact for funds used to purchase fresh produce. This is the very reason why bestessay should have allowed them to do what they want to for them all the time.
