Good luck mama... As a family on food stamps it really does help.
ONly in my situation we dont get much, we only get 73.00 a month for a family of 4 as we were a lot closer to the income guidelines.
I went and filled the application that day, had an interview with DHS...We had our food stamp card two days later.

Can you call them to see if you can get in for an actual interview of your situation so that you can get approved right away..
I know every state is different so I'm not sure if your state does this.

Good luck mama...

ugh that sucks that they couldn't just approve you today in the meantime you could check out your local food pantry & get some food.

Absolutely check out the food pantry. That could really help you out. It's hard to get the paperwork together when pays are irregular. My DH works fulltime, but they always give me a hassle about my HGP business. It's different every month. I can't make people have parties!! lol

Praying they come through for you.
