it really pisses me off when i hear that people sell there food stamps. I know of several people that sell them for cash so they can go get booze and get drunk. I am a hard working single mother of two. I aplied for food stamps and I got them but not enough to really help. But this person i know get more than he need and he sells all of them every month.

Oh now, I see you know exactly how it is done, how's that? If you do not get enough maybe you need to go see the man you speak off and pay him 50 and get 100.00 more groceries.
One thing I have noticed in some of these blogs is that the people of Ava have a really hard time caring for their OWN business and staying out of others; they seem to want to always get on here and air someone else's dirty laundry, but never wnat to air their own. Let he who is without sin, cast the first stone.
What someone eslse does with their funds is really none of your business now is it? Worry about yourself instead of trying to keep tabs on someone else's financial situations.

That is understandable and I ag about the abuse of the system, but have you stopped to think that there are a lot of people abusing the system? There is no way you can stop it, so you are left with the alternative to accept it. I do not believe that alcohol and etc. should be purchased by trade of food stamps, but what about these people who need laundry detergent, soap, toliet paper, shampoo, over the counter medicens for their children, diapers, etc.? Food stamps does not allow you to purchase these items so in order to have them, sometimes you have to do some bartering to have what all you need to run a household. So I can see where some trading is appropriate in some cases and if you think for one minute, the system is not aware of these trades, you are very wrong. They know and they will be the first to tell you that they cannot do anything about it. They give the food stsmps and as long as that card is used to purchase food, that is all they care about. I am really glad that you don't have to trade your stamps or sell them, that is a great thing, but if you were flat broke and your child needed diapers ot Tylenol, what would you do; now let's say you had no other way of getting these items. Would you borrow money from someone and go into debt with no way to repay it or would you sacrifice some ice cream from your food stamps and get the diapers etc. instead?

There are various reasons why those who do not get help do not get it, but if you household is in the appropriate financial category, and you meet the legal requirements, you will get waht you need bases on what your income and debts are. There are aslo a lot of other organizations that will supplement you such as Food Harvest, Ministrial Alliance, other churches etc. Have you checked into these aides?
If you receive food stamps, Ozark Action will also help you with energy assistance and with you electric bills and housing. There are many organizations out there to enable you to live decent on small incomes. You will have what you need, but very little extra, but at least you will have shelter, food, clothing and all essentials, you only need to go and sign up and you will get help.
These offices also provide budgeting classes to help you stretch your funds and they are free classes. They are even offering garden spaces this years and helping you learn to garden and can and freeze your products, so that your family can have fresh food at a very low price all year long. And, did you know they will provide you with most of the plants you would like to grow, but if you have a garden spot of your own, you can purchase vegetable plants at any consumer with your foos stamps? Town and Country sells tomatoe plants for 1.99 for 6 plants and you can purchase them with your stamps and no taxes.
There are also supplement dietary foods you can purchase with your stamps such as Ensure,(both adult and children's); check with your local pharmacy and they can direct you on those.

The best thing you can do is to not elect Democrats. Republicans (etc) will still keep the food stamps around, but democrats are the ones who hand them out like candy in such a way that afford people to sell them for cash and cigarettes. Vote to tighten the belt on this so as to reduce abuse.

Hey avagirl, if you don't like people selling their foodstamps for cash, then maybe you should learn how to spell words in English before you try to talk about it. Just a thought.

I think that the people that are selling their food stamps for money is just plain wrong...I know for a fact that Jennifer Breeding(blond woman that works at walmart deli) has been selling her food stamps just to get the things she needs to make drugs. Her kids would always come around skinny and always asking for food and they always smelled like chemicals. Its so sad to see the hunger in thier eyes....No real mother woudld to that to their children. If they needed money for diapers or household stuff there is always pawn shops, yard sales, etc...but just to sell the food stamps for drugs is just plain wrong...

i agree its so wrong I know Jennifer Breeding is she married to Keith Breeding. Jennifer is a big druggie if she is the same one she has a set of twins that the state of California took away from her because she was an unfit mother and strung out on drugs all the time,

If I were you dumbasses, I wouldn't talk about people and accuse them of felonious crimes. That's called slander. They can go forth with a civil suit if they look at this and see that you've been spreading slanderous rumors about them on here.
