People in the news be trying to scare people. The letter don’t tell states to stop issuing food stamp benefits. It tells the individual states in the USA, don’t ask for your money back from the Feds until further notice, “don’t send us the issuance files“. Now it’s up to the individual states to decide if they are going to continue to fund the EBT cards. So no one really knows whats going to happen in November but if you rely on some one else to feed you then you know that can’t last forever anyway.
Read the letter for yourself here.
