Food Stamp Program Discussion To Be Held

KSCB News - March 23, 2015 10:25 am

tate and federal officials are preparing to outline the details of a new program for helping food stamp recipients in Kansas find employment.

Gov. Sam Brownback was having a news conference Monday at the state Department for Children and Families service center, a few blocks from the Statehouse in Topeka.

Administrator Audrey Rowe of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service also was participating in the event. Other Kansas officials and business leaders also were attending.

Kansas is among 10 states sharing $200 million in federal grants to expand employment programs for food stamp recipients.

The programs are designed to help the poor move off of food assistance and into jobs. Kansas requires able-bodied adults seeking food assistance to be working or looking for employment.
