Food Stamp Steaks for Dogs

A friend told me yesterday about recently standing in a check-out line at the grocery store. The woman ahead of him presented an EBT card to procure her food stamp groceries. As my friend left the store, he noticed the woman feeding her dogs that were in the back up her pickup. She was tearing the plastic wrap off steaks that cost $5-6 per pound and handing them to the dogs. This caused my friend consternation. He shook his head in disgust and said, “The system is broken.” He is a volunteer at a food bank.Hugging dog
