Not logical.

Why would anyone arbitrarily reject food stamps? If the system is there, then use it. You use public roads, don't you? Public airports? What about the currency you use, FRNs aren't they? Or, do you only use gold and silver or barter when trading? It is literally and physically impossible to reject public services; so use them until the system fails. The Soviets did and when the system crashed those who were prepared rose to the top. With food stamps you get to decide how you spend the money. A wise person might even purchase food items that can be transformed into a means of making a living. Make bread for neighborhood resale, make cakes and sell them locally. There are many ways of using the system to ones advantage, not everyone on food stamps sits around getting fat.
