Food stamps are vital for people who need them and there’s absolutely no reason why people who do shouldn’t get treats once in a while!

In our lives we are all at risk at one time or another of losing a job, or winding up in a situation where we need a little help and there’s no shame in that.

If it was you, would you want to feel guilty about every little purchase?

So, when food-stamp user @imjingerwithaj_ showed her followers how she could buy a Starbucks coffee with stamps, people should have cheered.

The woman visits a Target Starbucks and shows how it accepts her EBT card – Electronic Benefits Transfer card – a modern type of food stamps.

“Did you know that if you go into a Target or a Publix or whatever type of store like that, that has a Starbucks inside, you can use your food stamps to get Starbucks?”

The influencer then orders a grande iced peach green tea made from lemonade and lite ice.

She seems admirably resourceful; she makes her own jewelry and has penned two e-books, including a cookbook, ‘Spice Up Your Life.’

Loving this clip. This information is so vital for helping break stigma!

And she’s slaying all day long.
