Food stamps should not be used for junk food. I was a divorced mom with 2 kids working 2 jobs and never even applied for them. I also made my kids peanut butter and jelly almost everyday. They are both successful healthy young men. It pisses me off that people buy junk food from gas stations, bakery decorated theme cakes and soda and Halloween candy with food stamps!
We have the fattest poor people in the world and we pay for it. Not to mention the dental care and health care these junk food eaters need!
I am also a teacher that has watched “free lunches” begin tossed in the garbage and ice cream/snacks bought everyday. We had a kid that had 100 dollars in snack food in his account and free lunch ( food stamps too)
