Problem
Soda and Candy Off of SNAP Program
The desire of sugar became dangerous, in fact thinking about what you bring home for your family is not easy. As of January 1, 2018, the state of Arkansas will have soda and candy be at the full sales tax rate and not be considered food. Arkansas considers these items not food so why does the SNAP program still allow these items to be purchased by personnel on government assistance. The definition of SNAP program is a federal nutrition program that helps you stretch your food budget and buy healthy food. The obesity average is growing with ever increasing health problems. The visit to dentist is not only expensive, but also painful, and it can be irreversible. The effect of consuming soda is putting in danger the health of our children and they deserve better, despite thinking about the lack of information, practice, or low price. Please help, engaging with us on this petition to remove soda and candy from the SNAP Program. Help us inform Congress of this injustice on government assistance program.
