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.  


Well, they wouldn't be standing in line every day. They'd be going to pick up a to go box of food, breakfast and lunch. Though ideally it would be box of real whole foods, not prepared meals.

The summer lunch programs here already provide food in a to-go manner. It's easy and fast so I know it can be done.

Being hungry is degrading. Eating food from the trash is degrading. Begging people for food is degrading. All of which I've done. Standing in a line and being given some food other people chose, not degrading at all. Not my favorite option, but not degrading.

Point taken. I just feel like putting funds on a card is more convenient. But of course if there were no other options then I'm sure people would stand in those lines to feed their families. I would if I had to. But right now we have a system that works for those in need who aren't abusing it and buying beer and non food items. 

OAN I always appreciate your honesty about things that you have been through.

my ex co worker would be against this

she didn't think people getting assistance should buy cupcakes and the the like with their aid

come to find out this bish didn't eat her first ho ho until she was 17

no joke

she was mad her family grew up poor and they couldn't afford cupcakes and ish and felt if she went without so should others

but she would try and act like it was a health issue yet never mentioned community gardens and food education programs

also talked about walking 2 miles to whole foods with bags of food and said if she can do it everyone else can too

I'm talking about that specific situation. If a  person is so disabled that they must rely on prepared foods then the only options available to them are places that deliver. Here that's pizza and chinese food.

If they had a caretaker or community help then they wouldn't need fast food in the first place. But a person in this position would completely dependent on it, it wouldn't be every now and then.

And that is not a good option for anyone.

That was the norm here until 1-2 years ago, even at all grocery stores. It wasnt even considered a work around. The rules would usually be prominently stated on the wall of what could and couldnt be bought with EBT and the steaming at no charge was detailed in the posted sign so it wasnt covert. You would pay for the raw food b4 they steam the fish. I dont really know what made the gvmt stop that.

.........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


yeah...i wouldn't expect the majority would just wild out on fast food...

don't say that

she is a white woman from a third world country that thinks if her family made it (mind you her father moved them here while getting trying to get an education, now has a Master's) any family can...no matter the circumstances

she grew up in a two parent household and saw a strong work ethic all her life and thinks that had no bearing on how she turned out

she is also dating a very wealth man from a very wealthy family and is pretty mush kept at this point, but prefers to live some pseudo-struggle life

she has her good points but she is still conservative and somewhat prejudice (most be in a good mood becuase I didn't type racist)
