Thought for those who think negatively about people on food stamps...
So why if the homeless can have goodies do you think people on pa should not be able to get cookies and what not? My family was on pa and while most of our stuff was healthy my kids did get cookies and soda once in a while. What is so wrong with that? Everyone deserves a treat now and then don't you think?
Why pass judgement? Sometimes people need help and just because they are broke does not mean they should not get to enjoy some ice cream or cookies or what have you. It is already a burden to have to ask for help in the first place. I remember being embarrassed to have to go fill out the papers. The interviews were worse and I always felt like a piece of shit. I am thankfully no longer on pa and I am proud of that, but I find it ridiculous to be so judgmental.
Most of the homeless people I met were in the situation they were in because of drugs or physical ailments with a lack of a support system. So why bash people on pa for what they buy? Does it really matt? Does your kids like an occasional cookie or soda? Every kid I ever met does, so why deny children with poor parents that treat?
