    Default Food stamp users can now buy food ONLINE and have it DELIVERED to their home!!!

    Pure insanity. SNAP users should have to go to the store and their food stamps should be good for only a few staples like rice, flour, rolled oats and bananas.

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/04/18/busin...nap/index.html

    april 18 2019 New York (CNN Business)Walmart, Amazon and grocery chains like ShopRite hope to tap into a lucrative new market: Food stamp recipients who want to shop for groceries online.

    For the first time, the US Department of Agriculture has given the green light for recipients of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, to use their benefits to buy groceries online and get them delivered to their homes, the agency said Thursday.

    The retailers are kicking off a two-year pilot in New York that will enable some of the state's 2.7 million SNAP recipients to use their benefits for online grocery orders.

    This doesn't sidestep limitations regarding what they can use it for. It's unclear if it covers delivery fees but the plus is that there won't need to be all those motorized lard carts and roving bands of screaming brats.
    I actually like that benefit.

    What limitations? Snappers use food stamps to get lobster and junk food all the time.

    they are apparently on the "ok" list. the stores have to demonstrate that the stamps they want to be reimbursed for were spent on stuff on the list. they dont establish the list, have to talk to Congress about that.

    I took people to the polls in my CAR. 2 or 3 asked me to drop them off on the way home--at the grocery store.

    I felt a little "put out" until I realized, oh yeah, I have a car. Duh!!

    In the old days you would see lots of people with those pull baskets on wheels going to and from the store. Of course there were stores in your neighborhood then.
    This does a lot to address "food deserts" but time will tell if its possible to deliver to crime infested areas. It was the crime that drove the stores off and prevents take out, cabs and first responders from going there.

    Or maybe the state should set up distribution centers where welfare queens can come and pick up their free food. That could work if all the DCs carried were a few staples like rice, flour and rolled oats.

    Take that up with congress. They establish what may and may not be gotten.
    Still have to get to these centers. Far more expensive to establish and man ones close enough to walk to.

    Agreed, & hopefully it will be workable.

    There is money to be made. The few lil Mom & Pop stores will likely struggle, leave or fail~ or join the deliver game.

    It is really sad that some in our country have more trust & respect for foreign adversarial leaders than our own loyal opposition.

    Every grocery store in this sanctuary state charges for delivery, that includes walmart etc...

    It is the direction the food service industry is going.......

    They can get free pick-up @ the locations.

    Poor people are stupid and lazy. This will cause more pressure to increase the amount of food stamps, because more parasites will be whining they can't buy enough food, because they're spending money on delivery services.

    And it keeps getting worse because the welfare queens all vote for democrats who promise them more freebies. You should not be allowed to vote in any year that you collected welfare.

    Do you feel pressured??

    You could try utilizing your 2nd amendment rights & relieve that pressure
