In an ever-growing number of states, if you crave a taco or fried chicken from a fast-food restaurant, you can pay for it with food stamps.

Food stamps - known more formally as the USDA's Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program - have been in use for grocery staples, such as bread and milk, since 1934, but now, for the first time, they can be used for fast food in four states across the country.

The number of businesses - including convenience and discount stores, gas stations and pharmacies - that have been approved to accept food stamps has increased by a third over the course of three years from 2005 to 2010,USA Today reports, and fast-food chains are working hard to get a cut of the federal dollars in Florida, California, Arizona and Michigan.

The funds allocated to the food stamp program have increased exponentially, from $28.5 billion to $64.7 billion in that same time frame, according to USA Today, and at a time when people have less money to spend, the bump in federal dollars can mean a lot to the fast-industry.

Yum! Brands, based in Louisville, Ky., which operates a string of restaurants that includes Taco Bell, KFC, Long John Silver's and Pizza Hut, are among those applying for inclusion in the food stamp program, saying that elderly, disabled and homeless people have difficulty preparing meals, ABC affiliate WHAS reported.

Here's a quick list of fast food restaurants in states that already accept food stamps for restaurant meals:


Church's Chicken

Kentucky Fried Chicken



Grandma's Famous Chicken

Eight Mile Pancake House

Mr. T's BBQ

Vito's Pizza


Jack in the Box


El Pollo Loco

Papa Murphy's Pizza

Burger King (some locations are beginning to accept EBT Anaheim Blvd & Ball Road is one)



Taco Bell

Pizza Hut

Papa Murphy's Pizza


Domino's Pizza

Golden Corral

Southern Cuisine

Rally's Hamburger

I have to point out, after adding my answers to this, I was informed that Burger King (the location I added) only accepted EBT CASH benefits. So you can only use your EBT card at most of these locations if you receive CASH benefits, not just [food stamps].
