Food stamp coverage

With costs of living increasing, I wonder if other families are aware of one cost that is not covered. Women’s feminine hygiene products are not covered by food stamps. Feminine hygiene products are included with toilet paper as “paper products,” which food stamps do not cover.

I have written to the state Department of Health and Human Services and was informed that costs are too high to change the food stamp program. I am hoping that the change in the political landscape will encourage a new look at this problem.
