Moms on food stamps. No fights no bashing or I will delete this.

How much do you get and how many are in your family and what is your income. Please answer anon. I don;t want anyone being called anything mean. I am trying to figure out if I should even try to apply.

  • I bring in about $800 a month babysitting and dh has been bringing in around $2000 a month lately (he is self-employed). We just got our amount readjusted and these are the numbers they used. We get $174 a month in food stamps and we are family of 5. Before I started babysitting and it was just dh bringing in money we got $392. Dh was also only bringing in about $1200 to $1500 a month then.

  • I get $375 a month. My hubby gets around $230 a week, give or take a little. Food stamps have helped us so much. To apply your income has to be less than $1,100 I believe. In my household it my hubby, 6 month old and me.

  • i dont know what state your from but if you go online they have food stamp benefit calculators that can figure out roughly if you qualify and how much... just search food stamps and the state and see if the benefit calculator pops up... here is a link to one i found... idk if it works in you state..

  • When we were on, we were a family of 5, making just $200 a month (yes that's right!) we did not receive any other help (like cash aid) and we got around $600 a month of food stamps. It was a temporary assistance that was highly appreciated!!
