What Food Stamps Will Get You, Now and After the Looming Cuts

by Andrew Price

For those of us who haven't lived on food stamps, it's interesting to see exactly what kind of diet it translates into. It's spartan already, and if these cuts go through it will no longer include luxuries like dry pasta and desiccated lentils.

To put this in context, by the way, there are about 40 million people in the food stamp program and (irony!) half of beneficiaries are children. I'm sure the nutrition bill is great, but this seems like the wrong trade-off.
