Does everyones grub stubs (food stamps) go up in April?

My family just got approved for food stamps and we got a notice that they were going up in April. I'm just wondering because I saw on another question that someone else's are going up in April too. It didn't say why they were going up although I do appreciate it!
Anyone else?

  • But thank God that there is help out there for people like me and a lot of other families out there. People are getting laid off everyday and there are no jobs out there. Mom's open up your minds and offer out a smile to some of the families on here who have nothing because of the recession that we are in, I know that this is NOT where I saw myself, but there is nothing that I am able to do about it, but pray that DH gets a job and everything goes back to the way it was, but until then, I make no excuse or appoligize for being on food stamps, I am glad that we are and that the help is out there.

  • I wouldn't know b/c I don't get them. I pay for my family's food out of pocket.

  • OP, I'm sorry , whoever you are and my heart goes out to you because I just feel drained with all of these questions you post on purpose. If you JUST GOT APPROVED why have you lovingly named them "Grub Stubs"? and If you need food stamps, then why do you own a computer and have Internet access? If you could hear my tone of voice you would hear one of dismay and sadness. Why are everyone priorities so messed up? I went years without a computer, Cable, Internet. I worked, paid my taxes and with the refund I got I finally bought a computer. Only to join moms who gloat about living off the government. Sigh. I would sooner sell my computer and buy food then to broadcast and gloat.
