How big is your family and how much do you receive. I'm just wondering since I keep reading on here these outrageous amounts such as 700 or 800 for a family of five. I have a family of three and we receive 325 a month and we are VERY grateful.

 The government needs to cut you people off.  Truly sickening.

I get $562 for a family of 3. That was when I was on TANF. Because I reported my new "hours" for my employment in a "timely manner" no matter how much I make over the next 6 months, I will STILL receive that amount. Once my 6 months runs out, I'll have to reapply, but I can guarentee you that I make WAY over the limit.

Family of six--$800 per month. That's $125 per person per month. We always use it all up and pay out if pocket at the end of each month. Fresh fruits and veggies, supporting our local farmers market and butcher all cost more but it's all healthier and I would rather that money go to a local small business than a mega corporation like Walmart.
