Halacha - ribis
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

It's not a problem. The transaction is a sale not a loan because you are paying cash for the product, it is irrelevant how they paid for the product. Even if you would buy the food stamps for cash at full value it would not be ribis just like cashing a check (althouth it may not be legal). If you would pay less than the face value it would presumably be a machlokes if ribis is involved, assuming a food stamp is similar to a check.
