We dont have food stamps in canada... if your hungry for a couple bucks. You can get a lunch at the local soup kitchen. Or go to the food bank. And pay what you can spare and get some donated goods... I just dont get it. That money that goes into food stamps could go to something else... couldnt it?

Instead of giving them fs. Make them go to food banks etc.... they would have to take what they are given and make it work.... that would make me better myself fast.

Canadians can buy their own food without fs. Why cant the states...? If they are hungry why cant they go to a soup kitchen . .
We may get other cash benifits. But fs and its. restrictions is the most ridiculous thing ive ever heard of. Jmo

It could, but knowing our government, it will go to something worthless.

Yes, probably. Most likely it would go towards military, or obnoxious government wages.

we have food banks, soup kitchens etc, but usually they give out really...weird...food, some unedible.

really being on public assistance should be an insurance, like between jobs etc. way too many abuse it.

They would send them to the food bank or salvation army

 The food pantry in our area gives all of the food away.  No money is expected.  Food stamps have their place and value, but they are often misused or given to those that really could feed themselves if they tried.
