Beginning this summer, some Americans who receive food assistance will have a new way to feed their families. The Agriculture Department said that it will test a program that allows people on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program — SNAP, known as food stamps — to order groceries online through various retailers. The ability to shop online could bring healthful food into food deserts, low-income areas where fresh food is not readily available.
"Food Stamp Recipients Will Soon Be Able to Order Groceries Online" is from the January 10, 2016 Lifestyle section of The Washington Post. It was written by Maura Judkis and narrated by Jenny Hoops.
