Food stamps and health

More than 870,000 Missourians get food assistance through the Department of Social Services (where I work) each month. I just learned that none – outside of some contract work MU does in schools – get any advice or suggestions for eating healthfully on food stamps. Not during the application process, not in follow up mailings, not on the website. Sounds like a project to me…
