States across the country are being told to stop the supplemental nutrition assistance program for the month of November, pending further notice.

That’s according to a letter from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Fox 13 obtained a copy from the Crossroads Urban Center in downtown Salt Lake City. Crossroads says if Utah families don’t get food stamps, they’ll turn to the local food pantries, which are already strapped due to the government shutdown. Homeless people Fox 13 talked to, some who use SNAP, say losing food stamps would mean going hungry.

“This is going to create a huge hardship for the people we serve here in our food pantry,” says Bill Tibbits who is the Associate Director at Crossroads Urban Center.

They posted a letter from the USDA on its Facebook page. It says in part, “in the interest of preserving maximum flexibility, we are directing states to hold their November issuance files and delay transmission to state electronic benefit transfer vendors until further notice.”

November 1st is going to be interesting if those EBT cards stop working across the country.

What it could potentially do to private business owners if we see a run on stores like we did in a couple of Louisiana cities this past weekend.

Many Mormon households have significant stores, for bad times. The Mormon church has significant stores, or bad times.

Both would find ways to help those truly in need.

Salt Lake City is not New Orleans. If I was asked to bet on a location that could best weather permanent shutdown of federal food stamps, it would be Utah.

This is a nationwide order, the story just happens to be out of Utah.

I knew that. I remarked on Utah however, the subject of the article.
