When did you realize you needed the assistance. We have about $200-$100 to spend on food monthly after bills. We are a family of four.

If you have that little for a family of 4 then go apply. I know that you can shop and feed everyone with that little bit of money, but I also know it doesn't go far. If you need help don't be embarrassed or ashamed of getting the help.

We knew we needed it when we were sneaking food at work so that we wouldn't starve. It sucked.

I will be applying for FS soon. My SO and I are moving into a house in two weeks. It will be us two and my son until our baby is born in October. I will only need it for a few months since I won't be working and will have only one car.....

depends on how well you can shop. i can feed 3 adults and 1 9 year old on about $120-$150 a month including fresh veggies, fruit and meat. but not everyone has the shopping skills to pull that off. or are in an area with poor sales etc. 

i hesitate to say that if i were you i would not apply unless you regularly dip to !50 or less a month
