Check it out. How do you expect homeless people living I shelters to buy unprepared food and cook it? Where do you expect them to store these items? EBT woks like a credit card.... you can't purchase anything non food or used to prepare food (cooking oil etc). If you chose to spent it o shit you get to go hungry later. That's on them. And lets not get all pussy because someone has food stamps. ANYTHING can be scammed... lets not focus on the negative and think about the folks that benefit from it when they need it. Restuarants should accept them.... can you really deny the fact that a homeless person needs a hot meal to get going in the morning to pick themselves up out of their situation. Sure there will be scammers...but also know that the folks in charge have fought down welfare fraud down to the lowest numbers in awhile
in tn you can buy cooking oil .

Fast food is no worse the mass produced meats you get at the local grocery store. You people who judge ebt users as a group are idiots. You all sound so childish complaining about what type of food people buy with 'your' tax dollars. Who cares?!

My wife went to get us a pizza at Jet's the other day and she said they had a sign saying "Now accepting EBT." For those that don't know, that is food stamps, but wtf? What's next, 40oz, cigs, pretty soon drug dealers will be able to accept it. Yes I know pizza is food for any person that has a smart remark. I just don't believe it should be used for things like that. Going out to eat or ordering delivery, in my eyes that is a luxury, nothing that they need to survive. With the studies showing the obesity rate increasing and a lot of them are these people that sit back and draw food stamps, welfare, whatever you want to call it, not working, getting fatter by the second, now you want to allow them to order pizza from these places. Let me guess, they can leave a tip on that EBT card too which will lead to someone making up a scam and charging peoples EBT card for pizza, then splitting the cash with them.
The EBT card has both SNAP (Food Stamp) funds and cash assistance on it... So this establishment probably only accepted the cash assistance part of the ebt.

Listen, I don't care if you are Obama, it still isn't right. On average a large pizza costs around 10-15 dollars, do you agree. And that is to feed your kids for one night, which if you have four, I am sure it takes more than one pizza. Okay, take that same 10-15 dollars or double it if you are buying two, go buy white bread, ham, bologna, cheese, and you have lunch for a whole week. That is my point. I don't care who you lost your job to. This post isn't about that, it is about being able to use food stamps to order fast food which is ridiculous.
Stop putting the blame on other people for your failures in life. All companies had to get rid of workers, not for Mexicans to come in and take their place but because they could no longer afford to pay their salariesillegals, I will bitch about this, deal.

Exactly!!! I'm a mother of 3 myself. Also have a full time job and go to school and also on food stamps. Working minimum wage I am just getting by paying rent bills and diapers so it does make sense that with the $195 a month I get for food I buy healthy food for my kids and not waste the little help I get on JUNK food!! I'm sure he's not the only father out there struggling and we all want to treat our kids every now and then but why not do it when you have that lil extra cash saved up not with something that was meant to feed your kids healthy foods. So if you have an issue with other nationalities join the skin heads blog. Because this was meant for something completely different!!

Did you really just say you can GAIN weight eating fruits and vegetables? What kind of quack doctor are you?!

Aren't there more important things in life to bark about than someone getting pizza on a FOOD card?? What's the difference if you go to Kroger and get the pizza from the frozen section and pay for it through cash, credit or a debit card??
Regardless of what type of food it is, if it's food, you should be able to buy what you want on the EBT card. I am a Physician and you can gain a lot of weight if you eat a lot of veggies and fruits. It's all about moderation and exercise with ANY food that you decide to eat.
We should all be thankful the state even gives us that privilege to have the EBT card when we are in a time of need. We are all people regardless of where we come from. There will ALWAYS be users and abusers in every aspect in life so just focus on what you can do better for YOUR FAMILY!!!
Good luck to all on this card.

Your level of ignorance should be illegal I have to rely on benefits, even though I woukd prefer no to.I myself am an AA woman,student. Worked since the age of 19.Im not on drugs, dont have kids(they would ruin my figure)that i cant afford.I dont believe you have your facts in order. I can travel from city to city taking surveys and give you factuals. Why be so judgementsl, rather than concerned. Life chances continue to deprive me of a better life. You dont know an indiviuals story until you ask them.

The person using it don't because they have never had to work for nothing. The majority of the people that use ebt cards are useless pieces of sh-t that expect the government to take care of them and all twelve kids that they lay up and have. Survey shows that 93% that are using an ebt ebt card have never and will never have a job. WE NOW HAVE MILLIONS OF ILLEGAL MEXICANS COMING OVER HERE AND GETTING BENEFITS SUCH AS HEALTHCARE,HOUSING ASSISSTANCE,EBT FOR FOOD AND FOR CASH!FOR SOME REASON THEY CAN COME AND GET THEM AND HAVE NOT PAID A DIME IN TAXES BUT I HAVE WORKED ALL MY LIFE AND PAID TAXES BUT I HAVE BEEN TURNED DOWN TWO TIMES WHILE THE ECONOMY CRASHED AND I WAS OUT OF WORK.WE AMERICA NEEDS A MAJOR OVERHAUL. WE MUST FIRST TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN PEOPLE BEFORE TAKING CARE OF PEOPLE THAT ARE NOT EVEN LEGAL CITIZENS!!!! LETS RUN ALL THE ILLEGALS OUT AND TAKE BACK AMERICA SINCE THE GOVERNMENT WILL NOT DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT! IF THE GOVERNMENT WILL NOT LET POLICE OFFICERS DO THEIR JOB TO HELP GET THESE ILLEGALS OUT THEN WE MUST!

Wow...This is pure ignorance and lack of compassion for those that are going through a tuff time. Did you ever stop and think people have been getting laid off from work and that job was their only source of income for them and their family? Or maybe they don't have any family or friends to turn to. Or the better question that some of you ignorant people never stop to realize, "what if that was me". Let me guess you would be too good to use food stamps, or you are so perfectly prepared for anything life throws at you right? Lol. Before you judge people, look at your reflection and remember that could be you one day. I came from the bottom to reach the top. I'm not ashamed to say I had to use food stamps. It was either that or starve. I pray for all of you closed minded people that you never have to experience that.
Well said.

I too have a problem with those who abuse the system and I have found many ways that I believe they (government) could limit the abuse.
the person who started this forum thank you. I did not mean to hijack the forum.
one thing that I do get really agrivated at is the two gas stations in gallatin that will return cash on ebt.( you pay for a bag of chips find your remaining ballance and the cashier will ring you up for a store item like a bollogna samwich for the remaing ballance and cash it out to the person. I have not done it but I have seen it done by one of the pipe fitters i use to employ. that is one of the abuses that should be stoped immediatly. because then that is cash that can be used in any way that person wishes.
All grocery stores give cash back on EBT just like with a debit card.

And you can thank the money hungry Republicans that have brought all the new business that brings all the illegals and that they hire to save a buck. Its so funny that all the section 8 apartments and properties are owned by "Republicans". If the government money flows into their pockets its fine but then they turn around and bitch about people on welfare ..well my dear they're your tenants and wouldn't be in Hendersonville but for you. See its not all the Liberals fault trust me I was late to work ,yes I've worked my whole life without any assistance from anyone but maybe family from time to time, beacause the women in front of me wanted to know if she could get RED BULL with her EBT card and yes she could.

It boils down to this...

"The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and food stamps ever.

Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to “Please Do Not Feed the Animals.”

Their stated reason for the policy is because the animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."

This ends today’s lesson.

most people that get them sell them 50 cents on the dollar so they can buy their drugs and alcohol. They need to start cracking down on the ones that are getting it and make certain that they are not sellin them. If caught they should NEVER be able to get assisstance again.
