Food Stamps for Pizza?

According to KIDK.com, “The government dictates that you can’t use Food stamps to purchase pre-cooked foods. As a result, Papa Murphy’s is the only pizza shop that allows the use of food stamps.

“That’s because customers take home the pizza and cook it in their oven. What might surprise you is just how many people use food stamps to buy pizza. Holden Sweeden, the Rexburg Manager, had this to say, ‘I”d say here, especially at the beginning of the month, 1 out of every 4 customers probably comes in here with food stamps.’ At the beginning of the month. A fresh supply of money is put on the food stamps card, and account for a spike in pizza purchases at all Papa Murphy’s in Eastern Idaho.”
