My sister lives with us and we split the rent and utilities. My husband and I get 367.oo a month in food stamps, which is for a two person household because my sister and I have SSI and don't count on the case. Our Mom, who manages my sister's SSI funds, pays her rent and utilities and food each month. She gives us $100 a month for her groceries and we are always low on food. Teresa eats a lot to. 2 days age we had a box of 8 ice cream sandwiches. My husband had one or two and I had none. They are all gone and Teresa insists she had only one. But I found 5 wrappers hidden in her room. This is a routine thing whenever we have a treat in the house. IMO our Mom should give us at least $150 a month for her food. But its like she thinks because we get food stamps Teresa should be able to eat for almost nothing. Makes me mad because we always run out of food before the month is over. Thoughts?
