EBT Cards (Food Stamps)

Some things not well known about the food stamp program are;
Only food products are allowed (no toilet paper, napkins, paper towels, feminine products, medications or anything else that isn’t food).
The program is run by the USDA which is probably why nothing but food counts.
If you have air conditioning, you get a substantial increase in the amount you get for food stamps (this may be local only). I don’t know the situation with the air conditioning.
You can buy cooking sherry with your food stamps, so alcoholics will sometimes only use their card for loads of cooking sherry.
I have been approached by someone who was willing to have me cheat with the program, though I don’t know what the scam was. Be careful for these people, especially if you are assisting someone with their groceries, as they may lose their benefits if caught.
