The Trump Administration believes that their latest proposal would save the country almost $130 billion over 10 years.

He compared the proposed delivery service, which the USDA is calling "America's Harvest Box", to "a Blue Apron-type program where you actually receive the food instead of [receiving] the cash".

Under the Trump budget proposal, the U.S. Department of Agriculture would substitute packages of "shelf-stable" foods, such as pasta, cereal and canned goods, for about half of the value of the SNAP benefits.

"USDA America's Harvest Box is a bold, innovative approach to providing nutritious food to people who need assistance feeding themselves and their families - and all of it is home grown by American farmers and producers", Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said in a statement. Foods which could possibly be included in the proposed food boxes include grains, canned meats, fruits and vegetables, juice, peanut butter and other canned items. The president said that the proposed boxes of food would go to American low-income households that have qualified to be receiving a monthly $90 in the form of food stamps from the federal government.

Mulvaney also said the program would save the government money because they could buy the food wholesale.

Though they are considering changes to food stamps, members of Congress will nearly certainly ignore the Trump administration's beans-and-rice scheme when they begin the legislative process of reauthorizing SNAP this year.

Households that receive $90 or more in SNAP benefits would get a box of 100 percent US -grown and produced food.

Gruber also says they send educators into community to help empower people with the tools to shop healthy on a budget, something this plan would counteract. The money can be used for a wide variety of foods at most grocery stores. "I think the idea that we seem to be in this proposal going back to the days of government cheese", Gray said.
