Food stamps good for hot meals 

Via press release: In order to provide temporary assistance to Hurricane Katrina victims, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Food and Nutrition Service is allowing food stamp clients to purchase hot, ready-to-eat foods with food stamp benefits statewide in Mississippi through Oct. 31.

I have a food site/blog. It pretty much covers food related stuff.

Come and check it out if you get time :-) is now open. Click
