This is a food program for low-income individuals and families. SNAP used to be called the food stamp program and stands for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. It is run by the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture). Participants receive a debit card which is accepted in most grocery stories for the purchase of food.
I was on the system and it is slavery and indentured servitude. The mentality of the state is you should have as little as possible because you are poor and you should be punished for it.
I was made to work for various Non profit organizations for free while getting $100 a month to eat with. I was also managed in forced programs and job seeking. I my job seeking adventures I had to seek jobs and list them and have employers sign them. I you did not fill these papers out right they would penalize you by taking money out of your TANF.
One is forced to go to Nutrition and Job training programs and pimped out for free work.
This Violates the 14th Amendment of the Constitution and the UN Charter on Human Rights.

Newsweek reports: The Secular Coalition for America wants the Internal Revenue Service to revoke the tax-exempt status of religious organizations that violate 501(c)(3) rules by, for example, promoting political candidates or not using their funds for charitable purposes.
The coalition estimates that stringent enforcement of 501(c)(3) could generate up to $16.75 billion in additional annual revenue – almost enough to fund NASA for a year. Less conservative estimates, including an academic paper that pondered the fiscal implications of taxing all churches like for-profit corporations, put that number at $71 billion – enough to send a Mars Rover into space almost every two weeks.
We have not calculated jobs created by the Government in People Management. But there are many employees who help run the Welfare system. It is estimated by some economists that 90% of the Universal Income can be paid by closing all the welfare offices in America.
The estimated 3.5 million homeless people in America will have a chance to get a roof over their head. Tens of millions of American children will not have to go hungry because funding for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program has been slashed, yet again. Millions of Americans struggling with unemployment will be able to support their families without the added stress of fighting for the limited amount of jobs available. Poverty will be eliminated.
“Automated Unemployment” is the term being used to describe workers being replaced by new and undeniably innovative technologies. In the near future, millions of people will be replaced by robots, which is why we will need a basic income safety net in place before that happens. This situation is going to be made worse by the increasing wealth concentration in our country. With a serious unemployment epidemic on the horizon, and the majority of this country’s wealth in just a few people’s hands, the question of how we are supposed to live remains.
The Universal Income should be Non conditional and yearly pay about $34,000. People should have above the bear minimum.
