Re: Found this blog about Snap Benefits
I think that's totally do-able for a family. I live in a higher COL area. WA food stamps take into account our state's cost of living. So in some areas it's tight but other areas it's very very generous. Our state gives $200/month for a single person. I think that's totally doable. For our family if we qualified (family of 4) it would be $668/month.
I spend $300-340/month on food to feed our family. I make a large portion of our food from scratch. It's a big stretch to do my budget in this area. But I'm totally able to do it. For $400/month I wouldn't really even have to think about what I'm buying on sale/not, just if it's processed or not. Processed food and ready made food/freezer foods just costs a LOT. I think that's why the majority of people have a hard time with govt food budgets.
