This is just a heads up. For those on this site who may use or need food stamps, they are being reduced , start now to prepare your kitchen. I would like to give some hints here of economical food stuffs. Powdered milk, flour, sugar, salt, lemon juice concentrate, vinegar, oil, shortening, yeast, beans, rice, oatmeal, grains of any kind, honey, syrup, raisins. Any canned goods. Water, Tuna, canned meat, I didn't list ind. type canned goods but I believe you can buy seed packets with EBT card. A must! This is just for those who had to get on this system, not because they were lazy but they needed help. IF anyone thinks of something could you add to list (SAW THIS ON A SITE) Millions of American families could face a sparse holiday table when food stamps benefits get reduced in November, and that could be just the start of deeper cuts to the program to feed poor families. The modern-day food stamp plan, now called the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, is scheduled to scale back benefits for all recipients on Nov. 1 because a recession-era boost in benefits is expiring.
