The WIC (women's, infants, childrens) program is like that. It spells out everything. I think a system like that would be better. The other problem that I have with the system is that it is cheaper to buy all the junk then it is to buy good foods.

Fast food places qualify for seniors. There is a lot of restrictions on that.

Oh, and I am calling b.s. on that receipt. It is not called food stamps anywhere.
