I disagree. No one should go hungry in America. There are elderly who were led to believe that that money taken out of every paycheck would support them when they are too old or sick to work.
Everyone else should have to meet a very high standard to receive the benefits. And, if your kids get free school lunch that should be deducted from the EBT amount. That alone would save millions.

It has evolved into a much misused program that is full of corruption and misused my millions of criminals.
It's past time to end it!!
I think it is LIbEralS on here that says the following:

"End the food stamp program. Replace it with a program that provides hot, nutritious, prepared food. That way no one can sell their EBT card for cash which is done on a daily basis today."

My apologies if it is someone other than LIbEralS that says this. And my apologies if my quote is not 100% accurate. But the gist of the idea is as stated above.

This is a brilliant way to provide for those that do need the assistance while cutting out those criminals that simply abuse the system.

Teach the folks HOW to cook.
.
Too many of these folks when you talk to them, They do NOT know the first thing on how to cook a decent hearty meal for their families. To them, cooking is taking the brats to the nearest fast food joint.
.
They should make it mandatory that the person/family on the EBT/SNAP is to take cooking classes. Failure to comply should result in the removal of the person/family from the EBT/SNAP program
.
Then restrict what they can buy to the basic four food groups. Be it flour, grains, raw produce, dairy, cheapest meats. Also a few things that will help them like salt, baking powder, bread yeast.
.
Giving them prepared food that is full of chemicals and preservatives is not helping them. It is giving them the proverbial fish.
.
While on the other hand. Teaching those on the program on HOW to cook is the proverbial teaching them how to fish.
.
As well as what can be done is to teach them how to grow things like peas, tomatoes, carrots, etc.. in a small area.
