Do you qualify for food stamps? Seriously...

I went to my state's website and I qualify for 210$ a month in food stamps. I was really doing it for a lark, but may take the state up on it. I could really use it.

  • yes but soon i wont, I will be making about 30k in 4 months so i will no longer qualify and wont use the gracing period since I will make so much

    if you need it get it, its better that someone actually qualify than someone who just uses it to save money or frauds the system

  • we would have qualified last year but I didnt apply for them, this year my husband got a slight raise so we now make $100 too much, funny thing is if i lived in the next state over (45 minutes away) we would qualify for quite a bit, I think its interesting how different it is from state to state.

    I only know that we used to qualify because I did apply for reduced lunch at the elem school for my kids. This year I am paying full price for lunches for the kids.

  • No i wouldn't qualify, but really who fuckin cares who gets food stamps and who doesn't. This question is like asking somebody how much they make a year. Some things are just personal.

  • no we don't but if you do get them that would help you be able to afforda better quality of food. i want my tax dollars to go to feeding families not bank presidents and CEOs. When we had a flood I was able to get 650 in a one time deal i made them last for over a month
