The Trump administration hasn't said exactly how families would receive the food boxes, saying states could distribute them through existing partnerships or directly to houses through delivery services.
It would be called "America's Harvest Box" and include food that doesn't go bad fast like peanut butter, pasta and canned fruits.
The proposed budget, released Monday, would gut SNAPbenefits by $17.2 billion in 2019, about 22 percent of the program's total cost past year. Food stamps, technically called the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), face a $17 billion cut in 2019 alone, and stand to lose $213 billion over the next 10 years.
If the harvest box program is feasible and would in fact save money, it would benefit every American to reduce waste, fraud, and abuse.
The Managing Attorney of the Georgia Legal Services, Bill Broker, says food stamps are a lifeline for many. While the White House continues to work at selling this program to the public and Congress, it's still unclear how these boxes would be delivered. Currently, SNAP beneficiaries can buy what they want with all of their monthly benefits as long as it falls under the guidelines.
According to the Food Research and Action Center, the harvest box is "a Rube-Goldberg designed system" that would replace the EBT cards that SNAP recipients use at supermarkets, grocery stores, farmers markets and elsewhere, and would be "costly, inefficient, stigmatizing, and prone to failure".
The President said that any household qualifying for more than $90 in food stamps, would receive the new boxes. SNAP participants would receive domestically-sourced and produced food in lieu of a portion of their SNAPbenefits.
Uncle Sam may be radically changing the federal government'sSNAPprogram. A family of four eligible for SNAP must make no more than $31,980 per year, or less than 130 percent of the poverty line.
