Virginia: New Distribution Schedule For Food Stamps

 The Department of Social Services issues monthly Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits at the first of every month.

But  most times retailers have difficulty keeping their shelves stocked at the beginning of the month under the current system.

So the Department of Social Services now plans to distribute food stamps on the 1st, 4th, 7th and 9th day of the month.

The day  of issue will be determined by the last digit of a recipient’s case number.

The new schedule is designed to help stores who get slammed with business on the first of every month.

 In Virginia there are about 440,00 households who depend on the nutrition assistance program.
