*little background info* my hubby was medically discharged from the army for an injury and now with the economy and 3 kids we're struggling to make ends meet. we were on wic but unfortunately we still find ourselves in the negative every month. so we swallowed our pride and applied for foodstamps...
on a 1700/month roughly income for a family of 5, our monthly FS allottment is $88? i looked online today and this is what it showed. we haven't officially been approved yet, we still have to send in a few more documents. but they know our income already so i dont see the amount changing. i had a friend who got $150/month just for her and her daughter. beggers cant be choosers i know, im glad to use anything i can get at this point. but $88 really? that doesn't seem accurate to me for a family of 5 on our low income.
