Why can people buy junk food with their SNAP benefits?

unemployed_questionQ) Why can people buy junk food with their SNAP benefits?

A) The Food and Nutrition Act of 2008 defines an eligible food as “any food or food product for home consumption and also includes seeds and plants which produce food for consumption by SNAP households.” Any change to this definition would require a new law.

  1. I’ve relocated to Michigan and no longer need my food stamps or Medicaid in California. I applied for benefits here, but was told in order to complete my application I will need a letter stating that I no longer will be receiving benefits from California. I’ve called the Ukiah office on several occasions leaving voice mails requesting this but have still not received a letter or gotten a phone call back. I’d appreciate someone’s attention to this as soon as possible. Thank you very much.
