New distribution schedule for food stamps
The Department of Social Services now plans to distribute food stamps on the 1st, 4th, 7th and 9th day of the month.
The day 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.
About 440, 000 Virginia households depend on the nutrition assistance program.
