  • I will be applying very soon since feeding myself while pregnant is very expensive. I currently get WIC and its great, but not really enough and since they're changing the program...

  • i am right now but its temporary until my husband gets back to work. we been on and off for the past 7 years and more off them than on, the longest we had them at one time was 6 months and maybe a total of 2 years all together. and i dont see how someone can be on them for 6 years straight even with min. wage jobs we got booted immediately, which is no big deal, i feel rather embarrassed to use them now considering we were shopping at sams club with cash 2 months ago. it suppose to be a hand up not a hand out and think its crazy that some ppl get 900 a month, who seriously can use that much food? my hubby and i joke sometimes about these fat ppl loading up their carts with pop chips and crap at wal mart " oh yeah they are on food stamps" lol ppl paying with cash never buy that much crap cause even with good jobs cant afford the unnecessary bs these ppl on wel fare buy

  • Kristal....I know this is going to come across as bitchy but honestly I do not mean to be-I am just trying to understand something....I looked at your profile after I read your answer. You seem like a wonderful, loving person....you had 2 miscarriages at a young age--you have one child, you are pregnant with another, and you are on WIC and complaining about how much it costs to feed yourself. You are planning on getting food stamps right? At what point do you take personal responsibility for yourself and your actions?
    I think we all, as women and moms, set the example for our children. I would love to have more kids-but I know at this time in my life I just cannot afford to. It would not be fair to the unborn child or to my current one. I work hard everyday and am able to support myself. Yes, I've been blessed not to have ever needed public support but it has been through tremendous hard work and sacrifice.
