Food stamps cutbacks will impact Door County workers and their kids

A proposal to reduce the number of food stamp recipients would be felt in Door County, although it's not yet known how many people would be impacted.  The Trump Administration is proposing nearly $230-billion in cutbacks to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, also known as food stamps, over the next decade.  The proposal calls for a nearly $17-and-a-half billion dollar cut in 2020.  Joe Krebsbach, Door County Director of Health and Human Services, says even though it's not known which clients would be removed from the program any cutbacks concern him.

 

 

Since 2011, federal figures show the average monthly benefit per recipient has fallen from nearly $134 each month to about $126.
