Some say they can't survive on SNAP, well it was never intended to cover all food costs — it's a SUPPLEMENT!!! (high income, low SNAP — low income, high SNAP)
I've seen the challenges where folks whine about the limits of SNAP and try to live on just SNAP for a month.
Well, I can go it! Even LOW-CARB quite easily because my income is low.
For example, I can buy a 10 pound, bone in, pork shoulder for $1.99/lb.
Cure it, smoke it, and have enough meat for 14-21 days — as low as 95 cents per DAY!
Large eggs are, $1.45/18
Heavy Cream, $3.12/quart
Whole chicken. 99 cents per pound
Whole turkey, currently 68 cents per pound where I shop.
Etc. Etc. Etc.
My point is, some help should be going to those who don't get a supplement.
