How do you feel about Food Stamps being used for plants/seeds?


I recently found out that EBT can be used to buy plants and seeds that will produce food. I think it is wonderful because it encourages people to plant and grow their own food. I was wondering what others thought of this.

    I agree, it all depends on their motivation. It certainly is better than using it on Alcohol, or Tobacco.

    You are right. Not ALL ppl getting them can use it. We recently found out we qualify barely for a few $ a month, and we garden. Not all ppl can, but some can and I know I would. I think it helps, it takes no effort to grow some things.

    Yes! And how awesome they can grow crops year round, seed save, and have even more the following year. No idea how long it has been allowed, but I don't think was an option 8 yrs ago when we had them.
