Walmart Statement on SNAP Reductions

Last Updated: Dec. 6, 2013

“We know that any reduction in SNAP benefits creates additional financial pressure on our customers who count on these benefits.

“Our customers always rely on us to be a price leader, and we take that responsibility seriously. We remain focused on offering low prices to our customers every day so that they can stretch their food budgets even further. We have also provided online tools to help families maximize their budgets.

“As Congress considers changes to the SNAP program, we encourage them to adopt reforms that do not impact those who need the program the most. We also believe Congress should continue to support improved program efficiency, and efforts to minimize waste and abuse, which take away from those most in need.”

- Jack Sinclair, executive vice president of the food business for Walmart U.S.
