Food stamps update 

Via press release: Contrary to some rumors, benefits are to be used for the family for whom they were issued, and those benefits will not expire for 365 days from the date of issuance. Benefits for September were issued for all eligible Mississippi recipients on Sept. 3, 2005, and can be accessed through their Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) accounts. Food stamp recipients who are not residents in one of the disaster counties, but want to make an inquiry in regards to benefits or losses, should call their local county office.
