You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).
Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.
Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.
Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
Re blogging for commentary mostly. How are people so ignorant? The ONLY thing you can buy w food stamps is fucking FOOD.
You can’t even buy pre prepared hot food with food stamps, like not even the kind they serve at the grocery store. U can’t buy anything but groceries. Tell me where I can input my food stamps card to go to fuckin disneyland pls
As someone who’s worked as a cashier at a grocery store for a year and a half, I’ve seen people both abuse their foodstamps and use them wisely. I’ve seen people use them to buy nothing but chips and soda, but I’ve also seen them buy as many fruit and vegetables as possible. I’ve seen balances for as high as 300-400 dollars to as low as 9 dollars.
I’ve seen people get the stink eye for buying nothing but t.v. dinners and canned spaghetti and cheap artificially flavored juices when really you can’t blame them for not being able to afford to buy the ingredients to make those things from scratch. Some people can’t even afford to buy real orange juice and have to settle for Bright & Early, which is nothing but artificial flavors, sweeteners, and water.
And so what if someone wants to buy a 2L bottle of soda? Maybe they want something nice for themselves. Maybe they’re sick of water and gross, cheap juice and want to change it up a notch.
Yes, people abusing their foodstamps do exist, but I’ve only encountered a few. Most of the people who use EBT are using them to the fullest.
