  • I think it's a great idea! I think organic farmers should be supported by people from all income levels, no matter if they're using food stamps or not. A lot of families who use food stamps are probably not drug/alcohol abusers; I'm sure there are some good, hard-working people who just aren't able to make ends meet. I'm glad my taxpayer money can help out families like that, who want their kids to eat as healthy as possible.

  • i wish my WIC would cover organic foods for me, my child can eat what she wants when she is older, but i prefer organic, and now that i need the gov to cover it, i can't buy organic. :( but hey, help is help and i will accept whatever they let me have!

  • I have no problem with it. First, you don't know if someone in their family is extremely sensitive to pesticides. If they are, then they may need to. Second, organics on sale are often cheaper than the conventionally grown items. Third, it's no more my business than which foods they choose to buy.
