how much do you get in foodstamps

Posted by   + Show Post

 we just got approved for food stamps . and we will be getting 508 a month for 3 people. we have no pin for our card so we can't use it until we call monday. i have tried to call and set the pin but it says the bday does not match. o well    so i was just wondering how any people you have in your family and how much you get each month ?



Edit: Oct 17, 2012. so people stop saying i am pathetic and should be fixed. we have not had any type of assistance since 2010

How the heck do you make it on $145 a month?

Quoting babyjohnsmommy:

what do you people buy that you need to spend so much money on in a month....IM NOT BASHING i just want to know, we make it work on 145. if we want extras then we go buy it but its never much. maybe i dont cook enough but i make home made most of the week.

darn! my DH is the only one working and he brings home around 1800/month(after taxes) and we only get 150/month in FS! our rent(2br apt) is 830/month plus electric and gas and car insurance. we end up being able to pay just that. we dont have any $ for food so we get $150 worth of food per month to feed me(im pregnant) my 2 year old son and my DH. its not enough at all. the most a family of 3 could get in Delaware is like 500ish.

I can make it on about $140 every two weeks, but that was before food stamps and we weren't eating full meals every night! So now I will be able to spend about $120 a week and cook every night. I'm sure there will be some left over which is always great! I'm so thankful we got something to help us. I see that it's only you and your dh right? So that might be how your making it? lol i don't know! lol

my DH dont even eat our food most of the time cuz he is working and it is still really hard to make 150/month last with my 2yo and me being pregnant.
