USDA tests online delivery services for food-stamp groceries

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is moving to test the possibility of allowing food stamp users to get their groceries online, though the program could raise fraud concerns.

The Washington Post reported over the weekend that online delivery services like Peapod, FreshDirect, and Thrive Market are supporting the push. If the USDA determines the pilot program is successful, it will be implemented nationwide.

A USDA spokesperson told they will be seeking volunteers for the pilot program in the fall.

The spokesperson said “getting the proper technology in place to ensure process integrity” has been a major factor, as few companies have developed the correct encrypted PIN capabilities.

The tests are being conducted under the 2014 Farm Bill.

    And don’t forget they’ll all need free phones and free internet connections to place their orders and free computers too.

    Just another waste of our money, and “getting the proper technology in place to ensure process integrity”!! The last time we heard this type bullsh$t was with opeycare, and millions $$$ were gone, and then we had ISIS, and still being funded by the muslim brotherhood, better known as CAIR in the black house!
