The other day I was at the grocery store and the lady in front of me was paying with food stamps... which I have no problem with, I have a few friend who use government assistance for one reason or another. What I had a problem with was the contents of her purchase!
We are a fat, poor nation! I understand that! I understand that a lot of people can't afford the healthy foods and have to buy the processed foods. But in my opinion, when you are getting the food for FREE, you should get the healthy stuff! There is NO reason why her cart should have had anything other than fresh fruits and veggies! No, her cart had 12 pack sodas, snack cakes, chips, JUNK! ALL JUNK!
I know a little junk now and then is nice to have, but I think their should be a limit!
