We need a government grocery store. The boxed food won't work for people allergic to certain foods. Canned meat is awful. The government always screws up. Allowing people to use food stamps in convenient food stores. To buy excessive junk food. Making it so anyone can use food stamps-by saying you are their caregiver with no proof. A lot of the boxed food would be thrown away. We need a store where they can shop-but have the store reasonably stocked with healthy foods.
Great idea...food delivered to the home. Kids will definitely get food to eat. The parents can’t sell off the snap money or spend it on other stuff. The food delivered would be healthy and not a bunch of junk food. Kids could learn how to cook and be able to learn to take care of themselves. Uh-oh...liberals don’t want people to be able to take care of themselves.
How can it be a bad thing to try to improve a program that has not been revamped or updated in decades? It is worth exploring new options to better deliver assistance- and it is supposed to be only assistance, -supplimental is the name of the program- not the sole means of food for people.
I support Trump, but not thisvery, very bad idea. The gov't controlling what people can eat?
The boxes will be full of processed crap like public schools, and like the food banks give out, stale and moldy, that can cause diabetes, insulin resistance, allergies, depression, obesity, cancer, high blood pressure and more.
Anybody who likes this idea does not know the reality of food stamps, they only know hateful myths and stereotypes.
Did you know a large percentage our our lower-rank enlisted military families depend on food stamps? The vast majority of people on food stamps don't abuse them and are not lazy lowlifes looking for a handout. That's a cruel myth.
all they have to do is have people give a thump print..they did it in Newburg NY and cut 30% of the freeloaders who were double dipping NYC felt it was unfair to do to people...
Whatever helps us save money. If you don’t like the food, get off your a$$, and get a job. If you can’t, utilize friends, family, church, etc. Government help should be the worst case scenario, not the first option.
They tried something like that in california a long time ago... It started the "Cheese Wars"... And ended up with jokes like... "That's Not Chyo Cheese"...
Why are you marking my comment as spam? These are ideas floating around, nobody has changed anything, nobody has done anything. There is nothing wrong with floating ideas around and getting feedback. Today's news media though.... will twist this into this is happening and have dumb asses believing it. Although there is nothing wrong with making able body people work for benefits either. I got a sister in law and a brother in law that collect food stamps, that can work, and will not work because they are dope addicts. (This must stop)! Helping people is one thing, but dependency on government has got to stop. Nobody is going to come rip your food stamps, but if the government says hey we are going to help lift you off them and you do not want to better yourself, well............. You are going to loose them, end of discussion. I got a friend who has 3 kids, single mom! We pay for her daycare with our tax dollars, we help pay for her schooling, we pay for her food stamps, we pay for herhousing. (All Good) because she is working a goal to not be dependent and eventually her taxed dollars will help others. Although I got (myself) family members with kids living off the system who sit around all day on their fat a**es and contribute crap and have no desire to do so, and act like the world owes them. The system is supposed to work to get you off benefits, not keep you on them, and that needs to be fixed! The system is supposed to be for people that cannot work, it was not set up for the lazy and inexcusable or just because you keep spitting out kids. It is time welfare dependency be stopped and we start educating and holding people accountable. No one will ever strip children of what they need, but we can start holding lazy adults who can work accountable and take their benefits away. Welfare was not set up as a way of life, it was set up as temporary assistance to get you some of the things you need why you elevate yourself back up! If the government/taxpayers are paying also for a single mom with kids then she should be more then happy to take the free daycare and elevate herself out of poverty through a job or school. I say all taxpayer funded government welfare programs need to be geared towards lifting you up not keeping you down. So get angry if you all want, but welfare is not a career choice nor should it be a life choice for anyone. I love the idea of food boxes that are delivered, you go online, make your choices, and you get healthy meals, no more food stamps for the drug man, and no more cabinets full of junk. Maybe their lazy asses will go get a job with not having the choices of filling their grocery carts with junk. Just my thoughts.............
This is an excellent idea for improving both nutrition and cost effectiveness of federal food stamps, now accepted for nutritionally poor heated frozen pizzas at 7-11's. We need similar programs for school cafeterias to get them away from reheating prison quality frozen food and back to making nutritious and delicious food from scratch.
Cut out fraud and the poor that need it actually get nutritious food instead of buying junk food. But I'm sure the Libs would rather they keep eating the junk food, get diabetes and heart disease and keep big Pharma in business,
