FOOD STAMPS GONE: Good Bye SNAP - Hello "America's Harvest Box"!
Trump Cuts Food Stamps? OMG Boxes???

Y'all Trump has done it again. Trump is cutting food stamps. He's giving out boxes. They are gonna be called "America's Harvest Box." Food stamp recipients are in an uproar. But why...yall knew it was coming someday.

Government assistance and food stamps are suppose to be temporary until you can get on your feet. You got people making it a lifetime career. Get up off your lazy ass and get a damn job, , work overtime, go back to school, learn a trade or go get a better job to provide for your family.




USDA America’s Harvest Box

“USDA America’s Harvest Box is a bold, innovative approach to providing nutritious food to people who need assistance feeding themselves and their families –and all of it is home grown by American farmers and producers. It maintains the same level of food value as SNAP participants currently receive, provides states flexibility in administering the program, and is responsible to the taxpayers.” - Secretary Sonny Perdue

Under the USDA America’s Harvest Box proposal, all Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) participating households receiving $90 per month or more in benefits will receive a package of nutritious, 100 - percent U.S. grown and produced food. Approximately 16.4 million households, or about 81 percent of SNAP households would be impacted by this proposal.

The amount of food received per household would be scaled to the overall size of the household’s SNAP allotment, ultimately representing about half of their benefits. SNAP participants would receive domestically - sourced and produced food in lieu of a portion of their SNAP benefits.

Seems like I read this a few months ago. Have they already started mailing the boxes?

The link below says the boxes are part of the 2019 budget.

That's Awesome!

Hopefully, it goes through. I wonder why the Dimms aren't using that leverage chip?

I'm sure some of there core voters wouldn't be real happy about this.

Maybe this is why the SNAP benefits were given early this month?

Possibly setting up for the change over to take effect after the budget is passed and government reopens?

I don't know the answer for sure but this can be done without congressional approval right?

I'm in favor as long as it does not become a price fixxing scheme for perishables. Generally fresh fruits, vegetables and meats are too expensive for the poor to fill their bellies on plus it requires extra steps that also add expense like cooking and refrigeration. That's why they use their SNAP benefits on ramen, taquitos and soda. If they were able to provide enough to actually allow a family to really eat on this box without raises prices for the rest of us that's great.

Yeah, yeah we all know the story of the lady picking up filet mignon on her EBT card. That's someone gaming the system. I'm talking about America's true poor who have to decide between a $5 little ceaser that will feed them all right now or 2 lbs of broccoli that they have to prepare and refrigerate and it still will not "satisfy" like the pizza.

If tax dollars are providing it then we should always be trying to get the most bang for the buck. A program that helps farmers, possibly reduces medical costs dowm the road and mayne even incentivizes people to get off of food stamps so they can have some food freedom is a good thing.

I believe we have a moral obligation to feed the poor and help the sick. However what that looks like is nothing close to our current system where the inmates are running the asylum.

Still, I don't see this ending well. People with bad diets all their lives will not suddenly learn to cook or eat properly.

Do they teach meal planning or nutrition in schools? I doubt it. Even if instructions were included in the box they'd probably tossed unread. Governments need to stop dysgenic programs that keep the dumbest of the population breeding the most offspring.

Dramatic irony - wealthy people voluntarily pay big bucks to have food delivered to them in boxes because they get healthy and fresh food on a regular basis and they don't have to shop. Poor people complain about boxes delivered to them as unhealthy and not allowing choice. Go figure.

If and when this goes into effect look for food prices to drop as the market has to compensate and actually has to become compete with again.

I remember all the gullible libtards at a health food store I used to shop at GUSHING over Michelle/Michael Obama's healthy nutrition hoo-ha for school students.

Like these kids who are used to eating junk food are going to swoon over broccoli and tofu.

Meanwhile a NY Post reporter followed the Obama girls around on a trip to NY city and found them hitting several bakeries and candy emporiums to stock up on all kinds of "verboten" snacks.

yep but, we should hand that responsibility back to the church... not government...

they already have the 501c3 nonprofit organizations exempt from some federal income taxes.

and we the people, instead of paying federal tax, can go back to charitably donating directly to the organization feeding the poor...

it is all about the control that the PTB have had for a hundred years... and Trump is trying to wrestle it away from them...

The report says 81% would be affected.

People with "Special Food issues" aren't typically on food stamps. It's usually the rich white libs who demand gluten-free.

Which btw...was just a fad that is dying out lol

And the few who do have food sensitivity, I'm sure there would be substitutions to choose from
