Food stamps for fast food: 48 local Jack in the Box locations accepting EBT

 
    • Posted on June 13, 2014 at 8:28 PM

 SAN ANTONIO -- The rumors are true. Forty-eight Jack in the Box locations around San Antonio are now accepting food-assistance payments for their fast-food meals.

Throughout the week, many locals noticed advertisements promoting the new payment option. Some took photos and posted them on social media.

According to a spokesperson for the franchise, the restaurant chain is in the process of rolling out technology that would allow all of its San Antonio locations to accept Lonestar, EBT, Cash Aid and TANF cards.

The following is a statement released to KENS 5 by the restaurant chain:

"This is a great program for those customers who need financial assistance to help them feed their families, especially for some seniors and those who cannot cook for themselves."

Don't like it for several reasons...

-subsidizing many companies who create the need for the SNAP program in the first place
-contributes over time to health care issues that end up being an expensive drain on our government, not to mention the effects on the individuals themselves
-reinforces the idea that it's somehow impossible/expensive to cook for yourself and eat in a healthy manner (even in so called "food deserts")
-it's not limited to food/necessities (which is a problem in general with SNAP)

I don't agree. Just because you're on gvmt assistance shouldn't mean it should be wasted on fastfood. Healthy choices is what I agree on.

I see no problem with seniors . Many have transportation problems . Now i know why so many FF open close to low income neighborhoods . I hope the parents continue to purchase Healthy food for the children at least 5 days a week .

Oh and just in case anyone needs this for themselves or others...

Here's a link to the FREE cookbook created by an NYU grad student for people living on SNAP (or a 4$/day budget).
http://www.leannebrown.ca/cookbooks/

There's also a kickstarter to help pay for printed versions of the books. But the pdf is free. Lots of good cheap recipes.

I am surprised, but only because here in NJ, it is not permissible to purchase prepared food (the hot buffet at the grocery store). In the past, you were able to buy steam crab legs, etc from the grocery store and the fish market, but that ended 1-2 yrs ago, so Im surprised that ff is permitted.

The government would rather give them easy access to foods that will kill them than healthier alternatives because they're seen as expendable anyway. Providing a slow death to the poor makes our "health" care system richer.



So no. I don't like it.
