The recent investigation at Atomic Foods into allegations of illegal purchasing and retailing of EBT cards shows the imperfection in benefit distribution of food stamps and cash in our welfare system.
A simple solution to reduce loss and theft of these cards would be to have pictures of the recipients on the cards. They could be refilled electronically monthly and canceled if stolen or misused.
This won't solve all the problems with this system but it will help.
