"Cover Story" piece on The Kozy Kitchen, a Portland restaurant owned by Christina Lewis and her daughter, Brenda Daizy, which is the last in the city still accepting food stamps. Of 17 states that allow restaurants to redeem food stamps, Maine is the only one in the Northeast, according to officials at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which administers the 1990 Farm Bill's food stamp program, in partnership with state human resource departments. Lewis estimates that 30 percent of her customers use food stamps, which account for as much as $3,000 of her monthly food sales. Rick Morrow, who manages Maine's food stamp program, said 31 restaurants statewide currently accept food stamps.
