Texas food stamps can be a big thing. I get it.

Many people in this country need it and live on it. But should it be that way?

Are food stamps a temporary fix like a spare tire or is it something that should be depended on day in and day out?

Texas Food Stamps – Better of Worse?

The purpose of having food stamps in the first place is to give assistance, state assistance, to those who need it. Going hungry shouldn't happen in the USA.


Is this a life preserver or a stop gap to educating how to get back on your feet and be self sufficient.

The Houston Newspaper, found here, had run some information back in 2010 why Texas Food Stamps program is the bottom 50 for the nation. It's bad for those who need it but does it help the cause as a whole?texas food stamps

“Texas does not have enough workers to process food stamp applications and is one of only three states that fingerprints applicants for food assistance.”

Not having enough workers to process food stamps for those who need it is a problem, but having a process in place to ONLY give food stamps to those who need it for the short term in my opinion is an absolute must.

If the freebie program funded by tax payers, I'm a Texas resident, I want to make sure those who do qualify get their food and those who don't qualify to STEP OFF and “learn to fish”.

I would much rather see education go into teaching how grown adults can make some money versus baby a grown adult. Kids are different. Kids don't know better and need to sheltered until of age. But grown adults who come under hardship should get a chance to recover just not LIVE on it.

Texas Food Stamps – You Don't Like Food?

The long delay dissuades other eligible people from applying, Concannon said.

Umm, if your hungry your going to keep applying. If your faking it for free food and it's taking too long your probably going to leach onto something else that is easier.

Instead of making it where people can not fail why not treat life like a game where you have the ability to get back on your feet to better yourself and not just live at the bottom. There is no need to live off of the government long term unless your handicapped to an extent. Our will to survive should take you forward and the only reason people do NOT push on is because it's just easier to get some free Texas food stamps.
Get your stuff in gear, get help, and then get going. The truly motivated will, the lazy won't.

My gift to society is the training that is necessary to work online and not even dress up for an interview. Most of this can be done from even a public library.

I have found that education is the best solution to any financial hardship. Not necessarily by conventional universities or post-secondary institutions but by practical knowledge. Many individuals do use foodstamps as a freebee, how about mandating a educational training if food stamps are procured? Good article, food for thought! 😉

    i do agree no all or even that many ( i hope) abuse the system for free food without further bettering themselves.

    I thought the whole purpose of the system was to help those who needed it most. If you need it badly you shouldn’t need it for long since your doing to CHANGE what your doing today so you don’t come back.

    Education is the life of hard knocks. People just need to get help then move on, not continue getting help cause it’s easy to get.

    I would like to see a lunch and learn. You wanna eat? You better stick around and watch this training video because a test is coming. 😉
