Compared to prison food, that looks downright tasty. Yup, looks like good motivation to get one's self a job.

So the idea of surviving on SNAP money alone does not apply to them.

And most of those who don't have jobs can't, whether they are disabled or CHILDREN.

Having said that, I wonder where that $29/week figure comes from. In this state, it's at least $45. Not that that's a lot...

Get a job if you want to eat exciting food.

Or in this case, if you don't want to eat meatloaf and chicken every other day for a week, then buy something else.

A great deal of the meaning of that story for me was how much time it took to cook meals. Another was the part about the girl's family never being able to eat out (cost).

The comments after the article are very interesting. There are comments from people who were on snap stating that it is more than enough money.

If your not working you have plenty of time to cook. People have been cooking meals for a long time. That's not really a burden.
