Not everyone is treating the SNAP program fairly. Some people are biting the hands that are trying to help feed them. The EBT provided by SNAP is getting sold for cash equal to half the value on the card. People are lying about income on their applications when applying for SNAP. Sadly, EBT’s can help pay for energy drinks, candy, and soda as long as the items that are getting purchased has a nutrition fact label on it. At the beginning of 2018, it was reported that 4 percent of people new to SNAP, stopped working after receiving their benefits. SNAP should not get used as a permanent food aid program. One reason the program got made, was to help people who cannot physically make their own money. Another goal was to help people who have low-income until they get back on their feet. While a person is receiving help from the SNAP program, they make sure not to work one hour too much. If a single person’s income grows, they may have a chance of losing their monthly benefits. There are no limits on how long a person can receive SNAP, as long as they fall into specific categories when WIC can only get used for up to a year.There are two different time limits for the WIC program. Breastfeeding mothers can receive benefits for up to one year. While non-breastfeeding mothers can receive benefits for the first six months after the baby is born. Unlike SNAP, WIC comes with a book that will hold all the checks and has the buyers’ signature on the back. The checks are not anything close to an average check. WIC checks have a list of the items that can get purchased in specific sizes. Everything that gets obtained through these checks has to be WIC approved. Pittman stated in her article that, “WIC is for pregnant women, infants and children, so the foods are limited to things like cereal, milk and juice, as well as iron-fortified formula, eggs, cheese, peanut butter, and dried peas and beans” (Pittman 2011). In 2017, 7.3 million people were receiving monthly WIC benefits.
