Updates to SNAP May Keep Seniors in Their Homes Longer

Hopefully, not many of the seniors you know are living on food stamps. But a surprising number are, and maybe even more should be. Only 42% of eligible seniors sign up for SNAP (Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program), a USDA program that is distributed on debit cards, but can mostly only be used in stores. The thinking is, changes by the USDA to allow seniors to have their food delivered might encourage higher enrollment, and a side effect might be that the elderly can stay in their homes longer than they might, otherwise.
