Food stamps shut down everywhere? EDIT

In November it's reported that food stamps are being cut (reduced) Today on FB though a friend posted that the food stamps are now shut down indefinitely. The website is down and the 1800 cannot retrieve any info.

So WIC has been cut off, funding for Headstart and now food stamps. Smh They need to get their stuff together!

EDIT: So like JaysMommy32 said it's not caused by the shutdown, it's caused by a computer glitch. Hopefully all the states will be back up and running soon.

From the looks of it, it is. I'm in DC and after reading the post in another group I spoke with 2 people that I know receive FS and apparently their cards are fine. They were able to receive the balance.

Oh and from what I've been reading, its SUPPOSEDLY not Gov. Shutdown related. Its supposed to be caused by a power failure somewhere in the world (no pun intended )
