Does anyone know if deli subs are eligible foodstamp items?

not the premade ones but the kind that they assemble right in front of you. i looked at the list online but it's a little confusing. it says no hot foods but a deli sub is cold cuts so im not sure.

  • Why not buy the fixings and make them cheaper yourself?

  • Yes anything cold from the deli in a grocery store can be bought with food stamps. If you are thinking subway or a restaurant then no.

  • You should call the store and ask, though I agree with Dard, you'll spend a lot less money if you buy the ingredients and make your own, the markup on those is huge because you're paying for someone to make them, too.

  • The deli meat can be bought with the Snap card but not subs that are already made.

  • In this State and I assume every other state, anything cold in the deli is covered including subs made to order and chilled roasted chickens and even prepared sushi.

  • even prepared sushi.

    Deli sushi scares me. There's one store where I've been there WHILE the sushi chefs are there making it, but the others obviously order it in from somewhere else.

  • Pretty much if it's edible, it's eligible. Not necessarily a good choice economically, but sometimes I know there are extenuating circumstances. I got chewed out by a cashier once for bying a bakery cake with food stamps when I qualified for them, but what she didn't know was that I didn't have a working oven and the cake was for two neighbor kids whose parents had other priorities besides giving them a birthday party.

  • Buy bread and lunchmeat.

  • Actually, if you just want one sandwich, it is cheaper to buy the premade ones, than to buy meat, bread, veggies, mayo, ect. I dont know about the ones they make for you, but the prewrapped, made ones are definetly fine.
