Quote:Thanks to a pilot program from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, families who rely on the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) to buy groceries will soon be able to use online services like Amazon and FreshDirect. When the two-year program goes live this summer, it has the potential to improve access to healthy food choices in communities that are often lacking in options.

There so much abuse in the EBT system now, they want more I guess.

So Who pays the Shipping and Handling Charges?

Quote:While services like AmazonFresh aren't exactly cheap at $14.99 per month (and SNAP users will still have to cover any service or delivery fees), getting back those hours at the grocery store could make all the difference to a busy low-income family.

You pay

That seems pretty exotic for welfare recipients.

Most of the Fast Food places here take EBT already.

Buying a McFat burger with it, is very very different from using it to buy say a gold ring, or an iPhone, or a firestick . As you can buy almost anything on amazon...

I'm guessing Trump will reign this in before long.
