Food Stamps And Welfare Promoted At The New York State Fair

We took the kids to the New York State Fair this afternoon for a few hours. We saw the sand and butter sculptures, the kids had ice cream, we had some other fair food and walked around seeing the sights. The Center of Progress Building has all sorts of cool things to see, well until the section touting New York State government, the state employee union and this display showing people how to sign up for food stamps and welfare. The kids saw it and said “Mom, you have to put that on your blog.” So, here it is. The site the display is advertising is here. I didn’t notice if the food vendors at the fair accept EBT cards, I wouldn’t be surprised if they did. Although some still only accept cash.
