 ROFL,, Nope, we struggle just to pay the bills.  We used to get FS till i started getting disability and now we get food boxes every month just to feed the family thru the month. Even with FS we had to struggle to pay the bills.

I consider 600 bucks to feed 3 people with two of them small kids to be cushy, we spend a portion of that a month(FS amount from another post).

We struggle. The only thing we are able to give our kids is food. It sucks. Dh was hit by a car and is now disabled, and his disability is not much. I work 2 jobs and since he can't take care of the kids, we have daycare. And daycare assistance is tapped out. We pay $1400/mo for 3 kids. It sucks.

How can someone live comfortably and need public assistance? The idea of that baffles me. If you receive PA you aren't able to live comfortably.

LOL No such thing... if they are on PA- they most likely dont have a hefty emergency savings. How is THAT comfortable?

Ehh I don't get pa but we spend about $150/mo pp. We don't eat anything processed and only whole foods. How much do you spend?

 Do you qualify for child care assistance?
