You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).

Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.

Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.

Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?

People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.

Re blogging for commentary mostly. How are people so ignorant? The ONLY thing you can buy w food stamps is fucking FOOD.

This isn’t ignorance. It is a paid-for media assault by the rich against the poor.

And you can’t buy prepared foods like rotisserie chickens or bakery items, you can only buy the ingredients to make foods.

justthinktoyourself:  justthinktoyourself:  Hello lovely people I’m in urgent need of your help and/or your assistance. I’ve seen a few posts similar to mine and am I hoping that I can receive a substantial amount of support.Monday night my cat was attacked by some dogs. Normally my cat is an outdoor cat, but enjoys the occasional nap outside. When I got home around noon that day I couldn’t find him anywhere and he never leaves our yard, which is fenced in. I searched all day for him to no avail, but when my brother got home around midnight he found my cat dragging himself across our lawn. My brother carried him quickly inside and proceeded to call me. I took my cat to an emergency animal room, but only could afford some medicine for my cat. There are several lacerations on my cat’s tummy, none of which are too worrisome, but one of the puncture woulds is located under his tummy near his back is way bad. When I took my cat to the regular vet in the morning, even the e.r. people said, the vet said that one of the dog bites caused my cat to have a hernia. I have absolutely no money and the little bit that I did have went to my cat’s trip to the e.r. I really love my cat and do not want to put him down, but if he doesn’t have surgery to fix his hernia I will unfortunately have to. The surgery costs almost 3,000 dollars.What I’m asking of you is if you know of any places or organizations that can help me pay for his surgery. Or if any of you wanted to even help pay for his surgery and I hate to beg like this, but I don’t have many other choices. Even if you can’t help please re-blog and share this.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact me here (on tumblr) or my email: baby.baca@gmail .com.P.S. My cat’s name is Leopold and he is two years old.  There is now a donate button on my tumblr linked to my paypal if you would like to donate.
