The French government has released a budget that will increase the number of French food stamps recipients in the US by more than 200,000 people over the next five years.
According to a report by the French newspaper Le Monde, the budget will increase funding for the US Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) from $7,000 to $14,000 over the same period.
This means that if you are receiving food stamps, you will be able to spend $14.50 on French food.
The increase comes as the Trump administration is trying to ramp up its efforts to boost the US economy.
The budget also includes $2.7 billion in new funding for school construction projects and $1.3 billion for a federal housing program.
France’s President Emmanuel Macron’s administration has promised to increase food stamp recipients to more than one million by 2025.
