  • Yes, like they said if 2 households live in the same house and cook and buy food seperately. I know in OK I have a friend who's mom kicked her and her husband and 2 kids out while she was preggo with the 3rd and I let them stay with me and my boys, we both were on food stamps and we DID NOT lie to our caseworkers about it and we both kept our stamps.

  • i don't think so. you have to list everyone who lives in your house on the application and they use that to help determin if you can get food stamps.

  • Yes. If two families live together and store and cook their meals separate.

  • If you lie, then yes.

  • Only if there are two separate households living under the same roof (meaning that each household cooks and buys food separately). It's possible say if a family of four is living in the same house with the in laws.

  • Yes because they considered two different family living in same house. Oh plus that's two different income.

  • Yes it is possible. In my case my family of 4 had to move in with friends of ours (we are on one income and could no longer afford our rent) They have food stamps already and I just got my food stamps approved and my friends mom and husband also live with us and they have food stamps. So altogether we have 3 food stamp cards under one roof.
