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.

There’s also a lot of FOOD you can’t buy with food stamps. Hot food, prepared food, sandwiches. You can go to the frozen food section and buy overpriced, preservative-laden, pink goo chicken nuggets in a bag with food stamps, but you can’t buy a rotisserie chicken from the deli.

You also can’t buy any fast food, so if you forget your lunch or don’t have time to make it, you have to find something in a grocery store or drug store that you can eat in half an hour and can make in your office kitchen. 

You also can’t buy alcohol or cigarettes. I don’t think you can buy powdered formula, there’s a separate program for that, and it’s very restrictive. (Like, down to the brand and size.)

That program is called WIC. My sister was on that before our dad died.
