What exactly are food stamps?

Is it like WIC where they give you checks and you can only buy certain foods they tell you to buy in a certain quantity and brand name? Or is it like welfare Cash Aid where they put money on a card and you can buy whatever you want?

  • Well food stamps use to be paper like money but now they come on a card. You can buy food, pop not alcohol or paper towel or cigarettes

  • They put money on a card but you can't buy whatever you want. You can only buy food. No pet food, no hot foods, and no alcohol.

  • Money on a card. You can buy human food at the grocery store that is NOT taxable, except soda. =]
