47K Indiana Residents To Lose Food Stamp Benefits
By Connor D. Wolf for The Daily Caller
Indiana nonprofits warned Tuesday that policy changes enacted in July will mean 47,000 state residents could lose food stamp benefits.
The state nonprofits are most concerned about the limited resources they have to respond to such an influx. Charities that provide food to the poor will suddenly have to worry about many thousands of more people dependent on their services. Lucinda Nord, vice-president of public policy for the Indiana Association of United Ways, is very concerned of the impact the changes could have.
“What we’re worried about from a nonprofit, charitable sector perspective is, what kind of impact will that have on the food pantries, the food banks, the community organizations that are helping people with other needs?” Nord told The Indianapolis Star.
