In it's present form, the SNAP program
is subject to many potential abuses.

The Supplementay Nutrition Assistance 
Program (SNAP) needs to be reformed.

1. Restrict foods that can be purchased
to staples, such as, cheese, oatmeal, milk
peanut butter, olive oil, eggs, pasta, dried
beans, peas, potatoes, carrots, turnips, etc.

2. Require SNAP recipients to disclose
if they patronize food pantries or receive
free meals in schools.

3. Require SNAP recipients to prepare
a monthly food budget, to take advantage
of sale items,  and to learn how to prepare
low cost, nutritious meals from scratch.

4. Encourage SNAP recipients to buy
from local farmers and farm markets
whenever possible.
