Hot chicken with food stamps

I know you're not supposed to get hot foods with food stamps, but the gas station by my house has a sign that explains the process of buying fried chicken with food stamps. Not even joking. 

They say to buy the chicken (not cooked) and then pay for it. Then they will cook it for you, and you pick it up when it's ready.

I get that they aren't "selling" hot chicken, but they're cooking it for "free" which doesn't seem like something a business would do. 

Anyway, the line to buy fried chicken is a mile long. I guess that's why.

True, though the people standing in line weren't homeless. Or if they were they had pretty nice cars. There's a homeless guy that lives under a bridge about a mile away. IDK if he gets food stamps but if he does I bet he'd like a hot meal.

Well I agree, but the line was really long so I guess not everyone agrees with us lol.

my grocery sells that same chicken hot as a cold with directions on how to re heat it at home...I don't see it as a big deal. I think some homeless people would probably love that! I don't really eat fried chicken though its not healthy..maybe once a year we will have some kfc or something like that.

Wow, that's crazy.
On a side note, now I want some fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, and a biscuit. Guess it is KFC for supper tonight

That's what I was thinking, it's not QUITE fraud.. but they're showing them how to skirt the "rules".
