Some states allow EBT to be used for fast food purchases. I cant see any state will prevent you from using your EBT card to buy an Italian hero or 8 piece fried chicken at a supermarket. So your EBT card may not be good at Subway or KFC but you can buy the equivalents in a supermarket and be done with it. Where I live supermarkets do make sub sandwiches and have boxes of fried chicken
That is because there can be 2 types of benefits on the EBT cards. SNAP (food stamp) benefits can not be used for prepared meals such as subs or fried chicken. However some people who are on SNAP are also on other assistance which is cash (in Viginia it is TANF - temporary assistance for needy families) and can be used for any purchase.

So SNAP cannot be used to buy prepared food (such as a sandwich) in a supermarket? Is this really enforced? I’ll bet it is ignored in barrios and ghettos and perhaps enforced or obeyed in middle class areas
