There are many people who starve every day or don't eat nutritious foods because they can't afford to eat and that is unacceptable for standards in the richest country in the world. People shouldn't go hungry. It is especially sad and egregious when children who can't fend for themselves have to go hungry.
A temporary increase in food stamps would be justified because the economy is still not doing well. This means that less people have jobs and less people have food. Often, only people with children have access to food stamps. If there was a temporary increase, I would recommend helping people who need it regardless of whether they have children or not.
