The food stamp program is in dire straits, but that doesn’t mean the government has forgotten about Louisiana.
In fact, it’s helping to fund an effort to help restore some of the Louisiana food stamp rolls that were lost due to a devastating fire in 2015.
According to the National Weather Service, the fire was one of the largest in U.S. history and killed more than 500 people.
The state of Louisiana has put together a plan to get food stamp recipients back on the rolls, and Louisiana Food Bank Director Paul Stapleton told The Associated Press the state’s food pantry is working on a plan that would allow recipients to get their groceries delivered to their homes by Sept. 16.
In Louisiana, food stamp beneficiaries are eligible to receive up to six meals per day.
If you’re able to get the food, you’ll be given a receipt for that meal.
The food is distributed at no cost to the food stamp recipient, Stapley said.
In the past, Stacley said the state had tried to get people to go back to the pantry to get groceries, but it was difficult because it was so hard to get back into the program.
He said that after the fires, there were a lot of people in Louisiana who didn’t know how to get through the doors of the food bank because they were afraid to get out of the pantries.
Stapler said the food stamps program needs to get more people back to food stamps in order to make it possible for people to return to their families.
“We can’t keep putting them out there and then seeing what happens to them,” he said.
“It’s just a very sad thing that we can’t get back.”
He said it’s not easy to see how food stamp benefits have disappeared because the state is not providing people with the tools to make food deliveries.
The Food Bank of Louisiana is offering a one-time $1,000 gift card to help people who are able to access food pantries, Stapeley said, noting the gift card can be used to purchase food.
The program has also partnered with the Food Bank for Louisiana to provide free groceries to eligible people.
Louisiana Food Banks has been helping people return to food assistance for more than two decades.
The Louisiana Foodbank has been in operation since 1992 and operates food panties and other support services to help the needy.
It is funded through private donations, grants, and donations from the public.
It helps provide food to low-income families and low- to moderate-income households.
“With all of these people that are affected by this, and with the loss of their food stamps it’s hard to imagine they’re going to be able to make their way back to that food bank, but this program has really helped a lot,” Staple said.
The federal government provides assistance to eligible low- and moderate- income families who have lost their food stamp benefit due to the fires.
The money goes to a federal grant program, known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, which helps feed the poor and needy in need of cash assistance.
Food bank employees in Louisiana can apply to receive the money through their local food bank or through the food banks in their area.
In order to receive food stamps and other benefits, you must apply to the federal government or the state of your home state.
