Lots of talk about how Amazon accepting food stamps will hurt Walmart and other retailers' business – I don't think so.
Yes, we need to watch just what happens this summer. That is unless the new administration decides to make changes in the SNAP program which last year provided more than $66 billion of help to 44.2 million Americans - in New York, New Jersey and Maryland. In addition to Amazon, FreshDirect, Safeway and ShopRite are also joining the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program - the first time SNAP has accepted online payment for groceries. The USDA has said access to online groceries is a benefit to urban and rural residents with limited shopping options.
