Some college students have been utilizing the food stamp program since the 1970's. I know this from personal knowledge when i was @ university.

The main concern I have is that the program may be being "promoted" among kids whose parents have plenty of money to see that they don't starve - and that affluent, high-tuition kids are treating the cards as bonus accessories - because "everyone is doing it."

That's just wasting taxpayer money.

If "household income" (including parents) must be considered in order to qualify for financial aid at university, it seems that "household income" (including parents) should be considered in order to qualify for public support such as food stamps. N'est-ce pas juste?

But hey - maybe I'm just old-fashioned.
