  • The only program that, I'm aware of that requires an age limit on children is WIC. WIC is NOT food stamps. People of all ages regardless of children ages can receive food stamps; even people without children can receive food stamps. There are other qualifying factors such as income, bills, number of people in the home, but child(ren)'s age is not one of them.

  • There are no age requirements when it comes to getting food stamps, it's based on your income. If you have a child that is 5yrs old or younger you can get WIC.

  • There is NOT any limit on the number of times either...it's all based on your income, medical bills, and the number of people living in your household.
