I often tell a story of a trip i once took to the local grocery store, where a woman who appeared in her early 30's with 3 kids were in the checkout lane in front of me. When it was their turn she started a conversation with the check out lady, they obviously knew each other, the check out lady turned to the kids and said i heard your going to Disney world next week, are you excited, then the mom started talking about where they were staying, etc. When time to pay she pulled out a food stamp credit card and said i think i still have enough on this and proceeded to pay with it.
===========================================

And you have no idea why she had the card.
