The Trump administration says food stamp recipients should be doing more to be self-sufficient.
This week, Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue announced changes to the food stamp program known as SNAP. He said the program was "not intended" to be a permanent lifestyle.
The changes will give states more flexibility in how they run their food stamp programs.
Democrats are concerned it will lead to more cuts for families in need.
So far, the administration has not offered specifics on what all the changes will entail. Agriculture Departments officials said more will be released in the coming weeks.
