Re: Found this blog about Snap Benefits
When we were on food stamps we got $520 something for a family of 3. That's almost $6 per person per day. We struggled to use it all. At the end of the month we went out and stocked up on canned goods, pasta and frozen veggies. When we got off food stamps, we had a pantry full of food that lasted us a couple months!
Currently we're a family of 4 and I spend about $350 a month on groceries. Not including the baby's formula. But that is almost $200 less then we got when it was just 3 of us (my daughter was just an infant/toddler then too). So I think they give too much to some people. There are some that only get a couple hundred a month for a larger family, it still goes off income (I think... I have never heard of SNAP before today).
