Off topic: In some hood corner stores you can buy beer with food stamps. I think they just scan a food item but not sure. When I was young my aunt gave me some food stamps(back when it was bills) and I went and got her some beer.

This is strictly for financial gain of the company and not the well being of those who have ebt.

Eta: back home they have a Farmer's market right outside of the WIC office and WIC provides you additional checks for the market. This is in the 'burbs, I'm not sure if they had the same thing in the inner-city.

When people are hungry, they will stand in line. Where I used to work I would pass by a church that gave free food twice a week. Folks started lining up at 5am and the line would be around the block...old people with walkers, middle aged people, moms with little kids. Nobody wants to do it, but that's the reality.

And schoolkids have lots of different diets and allergies...guess what, if they want free lunch, they get what is given by the program and they're just fine.

Like I said, I am more concerned with hungry people being fed. If that means they have to stand in a line or only get rice and beans and broccoli, then so be it.

I c u Jack in the Box.

Jack in the Box workers getting paid minimum wage and low hours, many on food assistance, now they can use that aid to put more money right back into the companies pockets.

Surprised more restaurants aren't lobbying for this.Stern Smile


I like the farmer's market idea too TC.

it does. They should focus on making them available at most farmers markets

 
Clap  but most of the locally organically grown veggies/fruits are more expensive of course...

not so much when in season.

The other side of that con is that people eat too damned much

okay so we asked about fast food in the study (he even mentioned cali) but he didn't remember the results....I'll keep digging

.........we asked how often and how much did they spend on fast food

only found information for the control group, less than 10% reported eating one of their daily meals away from home at a fast food restaurant

I get your point maysay.  But from what I most families receiving fs are working poor. They have jobs. They just need some help. So standing in a line every single day just doesn't seem reasonable. And having the government dictate what they have to eat instead of giving them the option of purchasing their own food just seems kind of degrading to me.

You can use EBT at all of the vendors that are registered to accept EBT here. You can use EBT at the organic grocery stores here too.
