Things that can be purchased with food stamps..if you dont already know...

Posted by   + Show Post

Okay, this is a preliminary list, for my home state of FLORIDA, so I dont know if there are exceptional items in your state. This is based off my experience at both walmart and Publix. I know there are some moms who wonder if they can buy this or that, so list it here along with your state to let moms know of those "certain other items" and they wont have to wonder or feel embarassed to find out its not covered...

I have found that I can buy the following foods (add to the list any other foods YOU can buy and where you live)

Prepared sushi trays (we have a sushi counter at our supermarket, Publix)

Bakery custom cakes (not too sure if only a specific size though)

Deli cold foods (I must admit I have yet to test out the "sub" issue...)

For those of you who would say because I choose to buy those things I am abusing my food stamps, I reserve the right to eat anything I choose just as anyone else does...and if it's that big of an issue, then why are YOU in this group? ADD TO THE LIST!

In NY I have bought Protein Powder , Slim  Fast and Vitamins on accident - I had it in with the rest of my groceries thinking that i the end there will be 2 totals one for the food and one for the powder, slim fast and vitamins.

But it all went through as food.

Oh also in NY if you work and have children they will give you the option of having a certain amount set to the side so your child can eat while your at work, and McDonalds excepts foodstamps.

So far the only thing I know we can't get in Kansas that is considered food or drink is beer, not that I would buy that. Everything else I've been able to get.


I'm a 22 year old, pro-choice, natural & C-Section Birthing, circumcising, formula-feeding, vaccine giving, disposable diapering, baptizing, co-sleeping, sometimes CIO, spanking when needed, house cleaning, meal making, laundry doing, bath giving, story telling, smoking, occasional drinking, former teen mother & SAHM of 3 kids ages 3 & under and happily married (before any pregnancies) . I think I've covered all the drama topics.

so far everything that I have purchased has been accepted. I know that here in NY you are not allowed to purchase alchol with your F/S. I dont buy it often but when I do I only do it when we have the extra cash to do it with.

Here in ND we can NOT purchase hot rotisserie chicken or prepared salads at the grocery stores, beer, anything that is not food.

We can buy pop, baby formula

I have never tried the cake thing and I never buy alcohol so that is not a problem for me, I try to buy soda pop with cash because I myself feel that is a waste of the money if it is purchased with food stamps.  I would never myself personally use it at McDonald's if it was approved in my state as I feel that is a waste of money because I can make that same food at home for less.  Thank you for the cake idea because now I might try that for the kids birthday's.
