Would I be able to get food stamps since my husband works part time? And I am pregnant with my 2nd child?

I wonder because when I was pregnant with my first I got it when I went on unpaid maternity leave, since my husband didn't make much. What about with 2 kids now?And we still don't make a lot?

  • I'm sure you would. Lots of people who get food stamps also work. Good luck

  • You would have to apply to find out. I was just looking to see if we qualified because we're having financial problems at the moment and even with my husband working full time at a good job we qualify because we're a family of 7 (the online thing estimated we could get almost $400 a month and my husband makes like $38k/year). Not sure if we'll actually apply but it's nice to know it's there if we need the help. We qualify for WIC, too, since we have 2 kids under 5 (but I refuse to go on it because they are just a pain).

  • It is my understanding that food stamp money is given based on being lower income.. you would need to apply to see if you qualify. Good luck!
