Dufur Can’t be bought
To the editor:
I’ve read the letters regarding Food Stamps. Far worse than what can be bought with the EBT card are those things that cannot: Toilet paper, laundry soap, dish soap, shampoo, toothpaste, etc. Essentials. This is where the biggest change needs to be made.
I don’t have a problem with someone buying chips, or a candy bar even pop with the card.
I like treats once in a while and because I happen to be poor, I can’t have any? I am sure there are people who abuse the card, but my experience is that far more do not.
