Trump administration proposes plan to replace food stamps with food boxes

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump is proposing a major shake-up to the program that provides more than 42 million Americans with food stamps.

The president wants to replace food stamps for low income families with food boxes to save money.

According to Forbes, the White House budget director is pitching the idea similar to Blue Apron, a high-end meal kit service. Each box would include pasta, peanut butter, beans and canned fruit and vegetables.
