KY To Refund Food Stamps Spent On Ruined Food

Kentucky government officials say the state will refund food stamps that were spent on items ruined following Sunday’s windstorm.If food stamp recipients in Kentucky have spent their September allotment on food that was later spoiled in blackouts or destroyed in floods or fires, they can get the stamps replaced.Louisville Mayor Jerry Abramson says any distribution office can refund the stamps.“You explain that to them and within 24 hours, your card is in fact upgraded and you receive the additional moneys giving you the capability to go the grocery and to reuse those coupons," says Abramson.The city will also set up a mobile food bank Wednesday at the corner of 14th Street and Broadway.
