Can you work and get food stamps? What places can you buy with food stamps?


What I mean is what places can you buy food at with food stamps?

Update 2:

Will I get less if I work?

    The "working poor" often can still qualify for food stamps. This is how businesses like Walmart shift a lot of their labor costs to the taxpayers. It's also a fact that many military families earn so little they qualify. Where to spend this food aid differs by state but in most cases it can spent at any grocery store and even in a few places where it shouldn't be such as fast/junk food "restaurants". If we were really concerned about the epidemic of obesity amongst the poor (which accounts for them being more susceptible to COVID-19) we'd stop letting McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's, et al accept food stamps.

    Yes.  Many food stamp recipients have jobs.

    Food stamps cannot be used to buy places.  It would take a whole lot more money than what a food stamp is worth.  Hey - brain dead:  FOOD stamps are for FOOD.
