I didn't know that this was possible. I hear about how people abuse the food stamps all the time.  I hope this isn't going  to happen.

Those who are lobbying to allow food stamps for the purchase of fast food based on the premise that the homeless would have the opportunity to buy a hot meal do not have a very strong case. In the state that I live in, it is required that any recipient of food stamps (or quest cards) have a home address.

I don't think it's a terrible idea. Of course people can always screw it up or take advantage. I think if fs could be used to buy prepared hot foods that would help homeless or people who can't cook. KFC isn't so bad, just not McDs.

You can not buy food from fast food places with food stamps. If this being done then report it because it is not considered in the SNAP Program. Sto p complaining about things and do something about it.

That angers me!!!!

For one who has been on Food Stamps.  I have seen a lot.

It is horrible what I see people buying... It seriously angers me.

They are getting help from the State they should be ONLY able to buy healthy food.
Nutritious food!!  Just as they do with WIC  Woman Infant and Children.  They have stipulations on what they can and have to purchase.  They are healthy foods.

I truly hope that is not serious.  It will only make people either feed their children or families even less healthy then some do now.  And to think that it would be fast food.. sad.

*now that I think about it.  I do know that they can purchase only take and bake pizza NOT one prepared.  One you cook at home.

Interesting topic.  Thank you for the information.

Happy earnings!!  :thumbsup:

If it angers you then if you see someone doing this then report it. What is misinformation is that people are making up things saying people are doing this or they see this happen and not report it. You want things to happen in GOV the right way then report things. Be consistent on what and when you seen this happen.

I have heard that SOME states allow folks to use food stamps/ebt/SNAP benefits at fast food vendors. Pretty sure this is factual, but not all that common as individual states can regulate that aspect, and not many allow it. Personally I don't care what foods they buy as long as it is FOOD and alcohol, beer, and other garbage. I also strongly support efforts to have EVERY beneficiary of ANY and ALL government hand outs be drug tested on a regular basis!

Does that include Wall Street bankers?

Senators, congressmen, generals, ceos--drug test 'em all!  ;)
They do more damage to society than someone who's living on the streets.

I'm not sure if this will pass. I highly doubt fast food restaurants or full service restaurants will accept this idea. I'm on food stamps as well.

I don't feel it should be allowed. I know many hard working people who do not get any assistance and they can't afford to go to fast food places to eat, why should the ones who don't work or earn their assistance get to! It isn't right! :sad1:

Doesn't make sense----their food stamps wouldn't last them a week. Fast food's expensive.
