    It's an EBT, (electronic benefits transfer,) card. Some are for food only, (some welfare recipients receive cash benefits as well.) For those who have accounts, it works like any other debit card. Money is placed in your account monthly, when you use the card at the grocery store your receipt will show the balance in your account. Each state has a website regarding their EBT programs, what type of card you have depends on what benefits you qualify for.

    Patch, I have a 30 guy component that paintings the food market parking a lot, distinct those computer units do is arrest foodstuff Stamp card holders for finding out to purchase severe end cuts of pork, pork, and Sea foodstuff and take reported product out into the lot, and promote it to human beings waiting for them to succeed in this. They push this off for pennies on the dollar. so that they ought to purchase tobacco, booze etc. This component nets 15 an afternoon for this. What takes position to those scum suckers is almost not some thing. The Feds play slap and tickle with them, reduce them off for an afternoon or 2, Then the grotesque cycle starts all throughout back. we received't get a huge sufficient criminal hit on them to take them down for 3 hundred and sixty 5 days or extra. So that is one hell of a cat and mouse sport,

    There is an 800 number you can call and check the balance, it should be on the card but that can vary state to state
