Starbucks used to be known as the "affordable daily luxury."
Seems to me that if you're on EBT your affordable daily luxury should be food in general. Not overpriced yuppie coffee.

Except that pizza is at least food and not an overpriced beverage.

Smart of Starbucks. Not so much of anyone who takes advantage of that.

Wait, WHAT?

"your affordable daily luxury should be food in general"

FOOD is not a luxury. Without food, you die. Food is neccessity.

I heard in CA you can get McDonald's and other fast food on food stamps. Don't know how true it is.
