What do you think?
My opinion is if your not paying for it yourself you lose the privilige of choice.The foox should be handed out directly and consist of whatever foods are in surplus and most cost effective.No soda and steak for those who don not work.

Been saying for years that if someone is using food stamps and an EBT card,should only be able to use them at a food bank.That was the way it was years ago and there wasn't any problems.It is too damn bad if they are upset,maybe if they get really upset they will go out and look for a job.Look at the mess section 8 housing is in because some bleeding heart loon said it was demeaning for the welfare system to pay the landlord instead of the tenant.Before any of you bleeding hearts scream that the "system" does pay the landlord direct,that would be true in some cases,but the tenate has a choice of what way they want the rent to be paid.Just saying.

How about the white suburbans that get more welfare money then people on the EBT, should they be allowed to pick out any food they want??

Like the guy who own the mall in Irond., the guy who owns the Isquare project, the UofR, like Wegmans, like Tops in Henrietta to move across the street, etc etc etc????

I say there should be MORE items not covered by EBT/SNAP/Food Stamps:
Pet Food (if you're poor you dont need pets)
Candy and Chocolate products
Ice Cream
certain seafood such as Lobster, Crab, Shrimp, Scallops
certain cuts of meat like Filet Mignon, Prime Rib, Kobe Beef, Porterhouse, Tenderloin, T-Bone
Fancy shmancy cheeses
Sugary cereals
Soda Pop
and most of the food the Pittsford Wegman's sells:

Kosher
Exotic cheeses (very pricey)
Veal
and all the chef prepared take home dinners

Kosher? you dont see many Jews on welfare, they know how to manage money and get/keep decent paying jobs.(nepotism).
Also Kosher is not expensive. You will get some poor Muslim immigrants who eat it since it basically follows the same religious diety law as Halal does.
I thought the $5 and $8 meals are not covered either since it's a prepared hot meal. Does the Chinese food bar?
I've seen the Rotisserie chicken bought with it, but at least that's healthy food and a bargain price.
I don't see why not I see people at Eastridge Wegmans use E.B.T. to pay for subs they get get at the sub counter.

I'm sure Danny Wegman's uses some of his EBT money on gas to put into his private jet.

$96.2-million in taxes is more welfare then all the money that all the black city people get on their EBT cards.

""""" Wegmans Food Markets Inc. was approved for property tax breaks totaling $713,388 for an $8.1 million addition adjacent to its Culinary Innovation Center on Fisher Road in Chili.

The new 12,000-square-foot building will house the grocery’s specialty cheeses as they mature. The community benefit will be more than $1.75 million, COMIDA said."""" """"

You didn't mention his red Ferrari, which is parked at the Pittsford store frequently. I'm sure it sucks down premium fuel by the bucket load. He's frequently there, chatting up the shoppers. I'm sure he appreciates the hundreds of thousands a month that pass into his stores from EBT.

Fortunately, derision prevents the use of EBT cards at the Pittsford Wegman's. I don't recall ever running into a shopper using one there.
