Trump Administration proposes food deliver to food stamp recipients

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Trump Administration wants to deliver food directly to Food Stamp recipients. 

White House officials are comparing the proposal to home meal delivery service...Blue Apron. 

The USDA "America's Harvest Box" would be sent to some 38 million people filled with staples like milk, fruit, grains, meat, and pasta. 

The White House claims the program would save nearly 130 billion dollars over ten years. Consumer advocates fear the food boxes reduce choice and say some families could have difficulty receiving them. 

Food Stamp recipients would still get about half of their monthly benefit on an electronic card.
