Can you go to a local food bank or church?  They will help with food until you get your fs.

If you've been waiting since March then you really should have them by now.  In my state they have 30 days from the day of your application to make a decision.  After you are approved it shouldn't take very long to get them.  I would call the local office and ask to speak to the caseworker.  It's almost June and you should have had them before now.

Pay part of the electric bill and use some of the money to buy food.

 Call the electric company and see if you can pay half of it..and def call and find out where your FS are because that is along time!!! Maybe try a food bank in your area too! Goodluck!

Can you call and ask them what's going on? Maybe the mailman put them in the wrong mailbox and they got returned. Good luck...Oh and I agree with calling the Electric company as well.
