One of my mom’s pet peeves was food stamps going for junk food.
She would say, “they should take Oreos off the list and put soap and washing powder on.”
I used to agree with her until I looked at it another way. People get mad at poor people on food stamps for buying junk food, but no one else. Middle class people make poor food choices all the time but no one complains about them in the check out line. Aren’t their children also going to be malnourished?
