Free Food Delivered to Your Door . . . If You’re on Food Stamps?

~ The Rebel ~ 2012/08/07 14:31:01

We’re not supposed to call them food stamps. They are called SNAP cards. They are credit cards. Poor people spend. They eat. We pay. We have credit, so they don’t need credit. They have cards.

Under the voters’ radar, local food stores have created profitable businesses. They deal only with SNAPpy people. They deliver food right to their door.

In Texas, there are 3.8 million of these people. The number is growing daily.

This has been going on for at least 20 years. These free food trucks drive through poor neighborhoods to deliver food. They are not paid cash. At least 99% of the eaters use food cards.

Randy’s drivers sell what the company bought from grocery behemoth Sysco Foods. Frozen meat and breaded shrimp. Catfish nuggets and chicken tenders.

But junk food is the big seller.

Delivery to your door isn’t for you. It’s not for me. We pay. They eat.

Officials with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Services confirmed that Randy’s, Boxes and Bags Mobile Grocery and Bag Lady on Wheels all are approved vendors in the food stamp program, which now goes under the name of SNAP, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

    For the most part you are right people abuse this system but there are hard working,honest families receiving SNAP. My husband works but I am disabled and we have children..so some of us really need them. And by the way its not food stamps that's making this country go broke..I ' m sure those big companies and banks should take most of the blame..THEY ARE STEALING OUR MONEY......

    I'm a hard working folk! I work on my feet from 8am to 11pm sometimes without a break 6days a week and I'm supporting two children I receive food stamps snap whatever and if I didn't then I wouldint eat! What you really mean is food stamps takes money from the rich and helps the struggling! Sounds like humanity is doing some good helping out it's fellow man! Don't get me wrong there are people who abuse the system but cut everyone off won't solve the problem it will only lead to starvation homelessness of people dont eat they can't work

    This has been going on for years. In Houston's East End, where many people have no transportation and there is no grocery store, ( seedy convenience stores though) these mobiles appear daily. Someone ( ?) needs to take a look at what they are peddling. Maybe now that an investigative reporter has been sniffing around, someone will.

    HPD (Houston Police Department) reported yesterday that these truck are (coined term) weed and feeds. Over 80% of these LoneStar (Texas Food Stamp) food delivery truck have been found to offer marijuana along with snacks. When you figure these truck are servicing the inner city LoneStar recipients and offer a small choice on food option and just in the inner city there are over 4000 convenience store. It is not because they can't get to a store, they are either lazy or taking advantage of the Weed and Feed option.

    At least then I dont have to compare the contents of their cart to mine while I am in line. They have ckn breasts, and steaks and cookies, and chips and I have gr beef and hot dogs.... So while the whole thing is BS I can see ONE good thing come from it.

    You found a silver lining for sure. I am typically pretty easy going in my old age but a year ago I stopped in Farmers seafood to get 4 lbs. of catfish. I almost went into orbit when the lady in front of me paid for $75.00 or jumbo shrimp and lobsters with a SNAP card. Must be hell to be so poor that you have to have the taxpayer buy your shrimp and lobster tails.

    The term SNAP is actually the sound that the program makes every time dregs and illegals use their card and break it off in the taxpayers a** again.

    How you been Ms. Sheila?.......
