I think it would be neat if they called food stamps, food coupons, because then maybe more people would use them more.

I have not used them myself, but I think it would be neat if they had a different name for people who do want to use them.

But then I took a look at the images, and they actually do say food coupons on them, because I thought if they were called food coupons, it would make sense, and people would use them more frequently, but they do say that on the American food coupons, so maybe the term just needs to be used more frequently,

What I wanted to encourage and engender was getting families to use their food coupons more frequently, cause them they could be in the correct situations, and have the correct situations happening to them. I thought maybe it was ease of use, or the name, but the resemble normal legal tender, so maybe in general if they were just named food coupons, and called that fully, maybe families would use them more.

What ways can we all think of to create ease of use, to enable individuals and families to use their food coupons more frequently.

Either way, I would like to see the name changed officially across the board, it that’s good or suitable.

There an electronic benefits transfer card however was created, at some point in the 1990’s, so that is updated, cause I thought, well then maybe create a way families could use this with their visa/debit cards, but they already have an electronic benefits transfer card program, so it’s not likely to be that.

Through EBT, a recipient uses his/her EBT card to make purchases at participating retailers. SNAP benefits can only be used to purchase food items authorized by the USDA’s SNAP program. Cash benefits may be used to purchase any item at a participating retailer, as well as to obtain cash-back or make a cash withdrawal from a participating ATM.

It’s likely to be the offices themselves, and I am reviewing that.

For most of its history, the Food Stamp Program used paper denominated stamps or coupons worth US$1 (brown), $5 (blue), and $10 (green). In the late 1990s, the food-stamp program was revamped, and stamps were phased out in favor of a specialized debit-card system known as Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) provided by private contractors. Many states merged the use of the EBT card for public-assistance welfare programs as well. The 2008 farm bill renamed the Food Stamp Program as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (as of October 2008), and replaced all references to “stamp” or “coupon” in federal law to “card” or “EBT.”[3]

That’s neat, I am glad I followed up, they can actually not be called stamps or coupons, they have to be refereed to as card, or EBT, Electronic Benefit Transfer, this is something that should be making things easier for families then. I will do a bit more research, and see if people are, or are not using this more effectively, the cards even enable cash back at the grocery store. The changes seem brilliant, if I was going to revamp a system, then these are the exact changes I was thinking of and it’s already been done for the American system. Great.

Let’s just say of late, I have community planning, and implementation on mind a lot. Great. 🙂

So add in a unique identifier system, and the system is revamped in advance.
