Food Stamps use is soaring in Massachusetts. According to this article, rising food prices and the fact that it’s now easier to apply for food stamps has led to tons more people on food stamps. Is that a bad thing? I mean, the rising prices is obviously bad. But if people are applying for food stamps and they are eligible, it’s better that more eligible families are able to apply for and receive assistance. Of course, the problem is still that “the maximum food stamp assistance for a family of four in May was $40 short of what the government estimates a family of four needs for a basic diet.”

Also, I found this awesome article on the 20 Healthiest Foods for “Under $1” (quotes added by me).
