all valid points maysay that I agree with ... especially subsidizing companies that thrive on under paying workers

- if you have two jobs and kiss to pick up, time might not always be in your side. 
- they may not have jobs that have fridges and breakrooms


Yes proper planning, cooking meals ahead of time, etc do save time

Hmmm. I don't know how I feel about this. I'm not familiar with Jack in the box but it sounds like a greasy burger joint. I believe that most folk getting FS are able to cook. But I do know that there are some people who are homeless or old and aren't able to cook. But burgers and fries isn't good for anyone's health. I would rather a place like chipotle accepted benefits. Atleast you can get some fresh veggies. This is just going to add to the obesity in america. And that fast food crap is expensive. If you eat it often you will probably blow through all of your fs quickly. 

I can't stand feeding my kids that crap. If I know that we are going to be out all day I bring sandwiches, fruit, bottled water from the house. It saves money and its healthier.

They are allowed to withdraw money off the card. So adding fast food places to the list accepting EBT is not suprising

I wonder if Mcdonalds excepts stamps or will join . I think some people will abuse the system . I notice a lot of parents with a cart full of steaks and food items for adults that are blessed with stamps . White folks live in the deli and organic section using stamps .

Not sure why I should be concern with what someone chooses to eat??
Food stamp recipients can eat bad foods purchased from grocery stores. I see no reason to limit their choices, it's food-let them eat what they choose.

Not everyone can cook for themselves.

This reminds me of the thread about whether or not the government should control what you can and can't buy (junkfoods) with food stamps.

Stamps use to be seperate . I think that system works better to make sure the rent was paid . I wish they would give our family a few stamps. India would have her own Fridge . Now that i think about it , her items take up most of the space . I know we spend at least 100 bucks a week on my daughter food and snacks . I cook most days . My hubby loves leftovers thank God .

Pretty much all fast food places (burger king, mcd's, jack in the crack, etc.) as well as those fast casual restaurants and grocery stores accept EBT here in cali. They accept both regular cash assistance (welfare) and SNAP assistance (food stamps).

There are lots of barriers to getting and cooking your own food. People who need SNAP are more likely to be living in places that don't have any appliances, like a motel room, or may be homeless. Many are physically unable to prepare their own food. And many just don't have the skills to grocery shop intelligently or to cook.

But to me it's not about policing people's food choices. It's about using the limited dollars we have wisely, and promoting the best possible choices we can. Fast food is certainly not the answer.
