Food Stamp Of Disapproval

‎”More” restaurants? Stop the world. This is where I want to get off.

Although to be fair, this article is talking about Yum! Brands. “Food” and “Restaurant” are being tossed around quite liberally in this case.

The number of businesses approved to accept food stamps grew by a third from 2005 to 2010, U.S. Department of Agriculture records show, as vendors from convenience and dollar discount stores to gas stations and pharmacies increasingly joined the growing entitlement program.

Now, restaurants, which typically have not participated in the program, are lobbying for a piece of the action.

Louisville-based Yum! Brands, whose restaurants include Taco Bell, KFC, Long John Silver’s and Pizza Hut, is trying to get restaurants more involved, federal lobbying records show.
