12,000 Minnesotans could lose food stamps if federal rules tightened

 


WASHINGTON — Proposed changes in federal eligibility rules for the nation’s food stamp program may disqualify more than 12,000 Minnesotans from receiving the food purchasing assistance.

The new proposal from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) targets liberalized food stamp eligibility programs such as the one in Minnesota. The proposal has raised the ire of state officials, private food philanthropies and food stamp recipients who believe it will keep food from the hungry, especially seniors and children.
