BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A Grand Forks food distributor says the company is getting a raw deal from the federal government.
Lakeland Fine Foods has filed a complaint in federal court against the U.S. Department of Agriculture, in a dispute over a food stamp program.
Lakeland says the USDA has wrongly accused the company of improperly using benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP.
The complaint says the USDA has refused to provide more information on the charges or talk with Lakeland representatives.
Lakeland Fine Foods specializes in ice cream novelties and desserts. It sells to customers in North Dakota and South Dakota.
