Food Stamp Restaurants

I don’t want this to get too political or anything, but have you heard of food stamp restaurants? I didn’t even know this existed until I came across this article today.

  1. “Between 2005 and 2010, the number of businesses certified in the SNAP program went from about 156,000 to nearly 209,000, according to USDA data.”

  2. “There is big money at stake. USDA records show food stamp benefits swelled from $28.5 billion to $64.7 billion in that period.”

Restaurants such as Taco Bell and KFC are trying to get a piece of the food stamp pie. But many are debating mainly that it’s not healthy, waste of federal spending and so on. What do you think?
