does mcdonalds accept food stamps

Federal law prohibits food stamp benefits from being exchanged for prepared food. However, there is a provision that gives permission to states to allow restaurants to serve homeless, elderly, and disabled individuals. To date, only restaurants in Florida, California, Arizona, Rhode Island, and Michigan participate. McDonald’s restaurants in Michigan accept food stamp benefits. Yum! Brands, which operates Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, and KFC recently petitioned Virginia to let them accept food stamp benefits.
