    I am all for this, as I posted in the poll thread a month or two ago.

    Why don't they also limit the recipients to purchasing generic products instead of the name brands when they both exist?

    Your case worker is suppose to follow up on you - but they often don't bother.
    I don't know about most areas but where I live there is a job placement agency...they could be required to go to that. Fleecing wouldn't be so easy then.

    I suspect the name-brand companies' lobby is way too strong for that.

    ? why

    They don't even sell generics at my commissary. And when I hit Kroger or Walmart I often find that the name-brands are cheaper if they're on sale.

    But then - I always go for cheap.

    Generics are actually made by the name brand companies but with fewer preservatives and a slightly lower quality, still perfectly healthy though.

    The brand names wouldn't make as much money off of food stamps if they limited it to generics, though, would they?

    I'm not totally sure how foodstamps work.

    Generics aren't always cheaper or available - which was my point - so that would be pointless, really.

    I said when available. Unless there is a coupon or a special going on, I doubt that name brands are cheaper than generic products.
