The monthly cost of a so- called economy diet for a fami- ly of four was in Sep- tember. That was up one -per- cent from August when the economy plan, used to compute food stamp allowances, was for a family of four. Under federal law, USDA must revise food stamp alloca- tions twice annually to reflect changes in living costs. The Au- gust economy plan will be used as a basis for setting food stamp allowances beginning Jan. 1. When the August rate of was disclosed last month, the department indicat- ed the Jan. 1 food stamp rate probably would be rounded off at per monUi. Currently, the four-member family gels worth of food stamps. But as the September figures showed Monday, the economy plan already is more expensive than the USDA may allow families next January.
