Public Service Alert: EBT is down so if you are planning on going grocery shopping today, you may want to be ready for long lines if you are in one of these areas.

Good time for those who don't use EBT to go grocery shopping.

I live in LA. I'll head to my local grocery store later and see if it's true.

Not. EBT customers will still be shopping, but when they try to pay, their cards will be rejected and the check out lines will stall.

Upset and hungry families?

Or there could be technical difficulties that will be resolved shortly. However, I will stay away from the stores in the south till they get it fixed. It doesn't take much to set some folks off nowadays.

3 days without hand outs and the result would make Greece's austerity riots look like child's play.

That darn Trump, trying to keep the poor and downtrodden from having steaks and cookouts on Labor Day.

Without more info Occam wins here and it's a technical issue.

In never fails to amaze me how non-technical people, not saying anyone on this thread, jump to a nefarious explanation when some piece of technology breaks...

didn't people somehow manage to walk away with more groceries than they had funds for last time???
but well, I picked up my food yesterday, it's so much easier with walmart grocery, place your order online, arrange for a time to pickup, they bring it out to your car, and will even load it into your trunk for you, although we usually help with that part.

ain't had a problem yet with it, and I think it saves me money because I ain't walking through the store and picking up all those neat treats that I see on the shelves that look so yummy but then I don't really eat any afterwards..

how cruel... of course, some pre-planning probably would have prevented any problems in that area?

I'm just glad to see Texas isn't affected.
That would be the last straw for some folks.

the last glitch allowed recipients to buy anything and not just food. Knowing right from wrong was absent among recipients as walmart and several other grocers took massive losses for selling unqualified products for payment from ebt.
