Apparently the acronym NC FAST isn't a reference to speed, it's about fasting:
Since mid-July, thousands of families in North Carolina have had to wait weeks and months for SNAP benefits (commonly known as food stamps) as a result of the failed rollout of a new computerized program known as NC FAST. Statewide, over 50 percent of the households receiving food assistance include children under 18. From the mountains to the coast, food pantries are stretched to their limit, and parents are unsure of how they will feed their children. So far, McCrory and Health and Human Services Secretary Aldonna Wos, who oversees the implementation of NC FAST, have done little to help those affected by the delays.
This problem isn't even on their radar. If you're in such financial straights that you need food stamps to keep your family from suffering malnutrition, you won't be writing any campaign contribution checks any time soon. They need to change the acronym for this program to NC SOL.
