so maysay are you against them buying more expensive organic raw foods? since this seems to be about limits and ultimately costs, it seems for you...

It's about individual food choices.
Do these fast food eateries still offer $1 menus??

There are working poor who are only eating one meal or less a day so if they can eat for $2, it's better than hunger.

I think food should be free! food people need to live should be free, if people want french fries then they should pay

EBT started being accepted at fast food places just about 3-4 years ago here. So I'd love to see a study after a decade has passed to assess what people are eating and look at whether there are increased health issues/costs.

I'd also like to know just how much money these places are making from these contracts. I think the LA Times did a story on it but couldn't get the actual numbers. Considering they already get tax breaks and underpay their employees, it's ridiculous to me that now they also get government money directly as well.

I have never heard of fast food joints accepting stamps here in MD. I just realized that places like WaWa and 7 Eleven accept them.

Great idea isn't never use stamps when I was poor.
