The Court upheld the denial of food stamps for an applicant whose husband, a Swedish citizen, received a pension from another country. The Court concluded that food-stamp regulations and DFCS’s policies required that the pension be considered income and therefore verified. As the pension funds were not verified, the applicant’s denial was proper.
