In reference to a letter by Cynthia Wind and a follow-up letter by Derrick Underwood concerning the food stamp program not allowing feminine hygiene products, neither mentioned other things allowed and not allowed.
Not allowed are any paper products (toilet tissue, etc.), any medicines (cough syrup, etc.), and no health products (toothpaste, etc).
Allowed is candy, gum, soda pop, ice cream, cookies, cakes, etc.
Whoever sets up this program needs to make some major changes. This is supposed to be for folks to purchase good, healthy food, not sweet treats.
