C-Stores Preparing to Step Up on New Food Stamp Requirements | CALS in the News | Scoop.it
Convenience stores will have to start stocking a variety of "staple foods" with snacks and fountain drinks if they want to keep accepting food stamps, under a section of the farm bill, reported the Cronkite News Service. The provision, included into the nearly 1,000-page bill signed into law earlier this month by President Obama, would require that stores increase the "depth of stock" in four of those staples: bread or cereals, vegetables or fruits, dairy products and meat, poultry or fish.
