YOUR GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS: FOOD STAMPS

“The United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as the Food Stamp Program.” Official web-page is here.

Recipients cut off from changes to the SNAP (Food Stamps) program are because the exceptions for non-work eligibility has gone from (sic) 20% of the national unemployment rate to a fixed 7% unemployment rate. If your area falls below that, then you will have to volunteer or work to qualify for food stamps.
