Food Stamp Changes
Tomorrow, food stamps will officially be called SNAPs–supplemental nutrition assistance program. People getting the benefits do not need to reapply. They may, however, notice a change in the amount of help they receive. Virginia Department of Social Services says some benefits will go up; others will increase because of some changes to the program. For specifics, contact your local DSS:
