Food Stamp Benefits Restored

KSAL StaffOctober 13, 2013

Saturday was a day of disruption for shoppers using food stamps in 17 states across the country.

Shoppers from Maine to Oklahoma had to abandon baskets of groceries on Saturday because they couldn’t access their benefits via debit card.
Debit-style cards used by the recipients wouldn’t work for hours.

The electronics benefits system is run by Xerox, which blames the glitch on maintenance procedures.

Major states including California and Texas were among those impacted.

By Sunday morning the services were restored.
