Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program
Nixon says his administration is withdrawing a proposal for rolling back an expansion of the food stamps program.
In a statement and letter to Nixon Thursday, Nasheed had some strong words for the governor’s cuts, calling them “nothing less than callous” and “an uncommonly cruel action.”
“Hunger is here and when you take away the option of food stamps, you will have people more hungry than you can imagine.”
If we can get past the name `carp’ and the perception … we can prove this is going to be a highly nutritious, cheap meal.”
