My foodstamps went from $867 a month to $486 and I'm not sure how I'm going to make it work. There are five people in the house and food costs keep rising! Please give me some tips/meal ideas, etc!

Call your worker. More than likely you'll get a letter in the mail soon.

Eta; I read that wrong. Never mind. Bump. Lol

Oy. We are a family of 7 and I don't spend that much on food. Learn to budget.

Work more. Go to a food bank. Stop buying snacks/drinks.
