Bill Would Require SNAP Recipients To Buy Healthy Food

Healthy Food

Legislation to require Indiana food-stamp recipients buy only products deemed nutritious was expanded Monday to include all Hoosiers who participate in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP. Theses new proposed SNAP requirements are part of a bill that would also require some recipients of Temporary Assistance to Needy Families to undergo drug testing. Rep. Vanessa Summers, a Democrat from Indianapolis, opposed the SNAP amendment and said sometimes families can only afford unhealthy foods because they are often cheaper and sometimes families just need to be taught what to buy.
