This is actually a good idea
Yum! Brands, the parent company of several national fast food chains, including KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell, is lobbying the Kentucky state government to allow the use of food stamps in its restaurants. If the change in the law passes, Kentucky will join a very short list of only three other states – Michigan, Arizona and California – that permit food stamps to be used this way.
For homeless people or anyone without access to cooking facilities, this would be great.
Instead of panhandling in front of fast food places and repelling customers, homeless people could be customers.
When you are homeless you don't only lack access to food, you lack access to bathrooms. Using your EBT card at the local fast food joint would give you access to both. It would also give you access to air conditioning in the summer and heat in the winter.
From a political point of view it would add a very powerful ally in defending food stamps.
Homeless people don't need the nutrition police, they need assistance in a form that permits them to make their own decisions.
