As someone who's in Illinois and has received food stamps for three years now, to keep getting them you need to either: be employed, be enrolled in the Employment and Training Program, or be disabled.

And I have seen people trying to sell food stamps for cash. They are idiots, but that doesn't make the program any less useful.

Judging people by one purchase isn't helpful anyway. One week I bought with food stamps a frozen pizza, a twelve pack of coke, and ice cream at one store and frozen peas, carrots, bananas, watermelon slices, whole wheat rolls, and yogurt at another. Am I good for one purchase and not the other?
