Yes, EBT or Electronic Benefits Transfer is for Food and Cash assistanace. The one card can be used for both purposes. I live in Michigan and I was laid off for a while which is why I know so much about it. I just don't think it's fair to say that they are using "foodstamps" to pay their bills when they are not. My family received "Food Stamps" but not cash assistance so we would not be able to pay a Sprint bill with the card. I would have cancelled my cell phone and dealt with the bill rather than continue to use something that I couldn't afford. I know others out there that would not. I just don't agree with the program that Sprint is setting up. If these people really need cell phones there are programs for FREE cellphones. I think that it is wrong of Sprint to take this money that could otherwise be used elsewhere and for more important things like heating and electricity. This program is why people who are getting assistance are always looked at differently.
