A Baker in Walpole, Mass. sells her homemade pies at the local Braintree Farmers Market. She has decided to not allow anyone to pay using EBT cards (formerly called Food Stamps).
According to Andrea Taber, the owner of Ever So Humble Pie Co. in Walpole, buying her specialty Whoopi pies is akin to nail salons and Lottery tickets. Since it is essentially a luxury item, she has made the choice not to sales, using welfare benefits.
