food stamps-aka-what i am thankful for

please pray for us that we get food stamps. we are broke broke broke and if we get it i think it will be about $400/month. this would free up so much for us and i could pay so many other bills. and i could buy better food since i super skimp anyway. whole foods takes FS!!!! we can't even buy meat lately. we are living off MAYBE $20 a week for food. not including wic stuff and the CSA share that we got with family. i put in our application on wednesday. i work about 24 hrs a week and DH is only odd jobing, we we are on hard times. my dad has also been mailing me e-checks almost weekly. i didn't even ask. i am not a very religious person at all, but lately i feel like i don't really have a choice since i feel like i am the glue of this family and i need something to rely on. our buget id tight-income about $1500 and expenses about $1400 not counting things that come up. and i am behind on big bills so that sucks. just tell me i can so thins and it'll be alright.

Re: food stamps-aka-what i am thankful for

I live in florida and the income you can make is around $1800 or less to qualify for foodstamps. Many states are near the same. So basically if you and DH make a combined income of less than $1800 a month you should be approved. I recently applied as well and for a family of 3 ( me and 2 boys) we recieve $408 a month. It is more than enough to feed us. And yes Whole Foods accepts FS. I hope it all goes well and you can get a nice steak soon.

I am sure you will get what you need soon momma!

Did you have the express application option? here in Michigan you can file for emergency food stamps and they have to approve/deny your app in 7 days as opposed to the 31 days for a reg app...
