SNAP, EBT DOWN! People In Multiple States Can’t Get ‘Food Card’ Funds
Down Detector has received reports from over the weekend, carrying on into this morning, that some people in CA, NY, NJ WA, AZ, TX and others states, have not had their Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards, similar to a bank ATM or debit card to receive and use their food stamp and/or cash benefits, reloaded with their monthly welfare funds.
According to the Food Research & Action Center, food stamp participation averaged 44,391,436 persons in February 2016, which is the most recent report provided to date, and there is noway to gauge how widespread this issue is as not everyone using the food stamp program, now known as SNAP, is aware of Down Detector where these complaints are being left in the comment section.
