NATSO Welcomes Furloughed Food and Nutrition Service Employees

NATSO joined a letter with other organizations welcoming furloughed employees of the Food and Nutrition Service, which administers the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as Food Stamps), back to work after having been furloughed during the government shutdown. 
"Each of our organizations [has] a deep appreciation for FNS staff who work day in and day out to bring nutrition assistance in many different ways to people in need across the country. While we are grateful of the effort FNS employees undertook during the shutdown to support the continued operation of the federal programs, we very much missed the work and energy of the agency at full force." 
Many convenience stores that are owned and operated by truckstop and travel plaza operators redeem SNAP benefits. These locations play an important role in the SNAP program, especially in areas where there are few other locations for financially challenged Americans to purchase food.
