Community Farm Alliance Releases Letter Against Yum Brands Food Stamp Proposal

The Community Farm Alliance hasĀ released a letter outlining the organization’s opposition to Louisville-based Yum Brands’ proposal to allow certain food stamps recipients to use their vouchers at fast food restaurants.

Yum is asking Governor Steve Beshear to make the exception for disabled, elderly and homeless recipients. The CFA already took a stand against the change, but on Monday, the group’s vice president Cassia Herron released a letter encouraging Kentuckians to contact Beshear about the issue.
