FOOD STAMP CARD CONVERSION IS PROCEEDING

Oct. 23, 2002 – Food stamp recipients in Frederiksted should report to the Human Services office at their scheduled times to be processed for conversion to the department's Electronic Benefit Transfer program, which is replacing traditional paper coupons with debit cards.
The processing had been delayed but is back on schedule, according to a release distributed Wednesday evening by the Human Services Department. The release said all persons who had been scheduled for conversion processing on Wednesday should instead report to the office, located on Prince Street, on Thursday.
