How much do you get on food stamps? How big is your family? Is that enough for your food budget?

It's not intended to cover your food budget for a month. It's intended to be supplemental.

When I had food stamps it was for me and my four kids and I got around 600 a month and it was more than enough. I always had extra leftover.

We get $443. It doesn't cover everything but I really wouldn't expect it to. It probably would if ds didn't have special dietary needs. I hope to be off them by summer.

Zero. Three. It is not supposed to be, it is supposed to supplement your own money that you would spend and allow you to purchase more nutritious food (obviously a big fail).
