Food Stamps In Restaurants! Sounds Good to Me

When I was a young man living on my own for the first time, food stamps helped eat good back then in 19 something. Now we hear that Yum! Brands is urging the U.S. government to extend benefits of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) in some states to allow the poor and hungry to use food stamps to buy restaurant meals. The program is working in California, Arizona and Michigan, the company said. Yum! Brand restaurants include KFC, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut. Advocates for the poor and hungry hope to persuade more states to make restaurants a partner in feeding the poor. Jeremy Rosen, the policy director for the National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty, is allied with Yum!’s efforts. Homeless people, he said, often don’t have the facilities to cook food and therefore can’t always take advantage of the program. This way the poor and homeless can eat chicken. taco’s and pizza making us poor homeless and cubby.
