Something interesting about food stamps is that you can buy as much candy as you like with them, but not vitamins... shocked

The only issue I have with the system is that some folks are selling their food stamps(lol).

There has to be a better system to control this. They did away with the old way of issuing paper and now do the debit card. The change was suppose to decrease this illegal activity. But folks now go shopping as a group and pass around the debit card (with the code)...

And there are folks out there that NEED the help and do not qualify for it????

Great subject Jilly and I am so glad you are getting this help Rosie - you and Asia deserve all the help you can get smile

Angela, that is terrible about people selling food stamps. Arg, why do ppl have to try to ruin the system for everyone?

Rosie that is great you can get the food stamps. I have used them before and am applying for them again. It should go through and then I will have $200 a month to spend on food products and food plants. I can't wait. i am already making lists of some fresh food i can buy. smile

What kinds of things do you get with the stamps? Also, do you combine coupons with them?

I got the food stamps! I even got the emergency food stamps, which means right away and not having to wait a month!

I had to wait in line at the DES office for an hour and a half, but the interview only took ten minutes, and I walked right out with a food card. they did take my fingerprints and a photo to verify it's me.

This morning my food card has $200 on it for me to spend on food products! I am so excited to go buy something. Like cheese! You never get cheese from the food banks. smile

I tried once to get them and I was turned down. I am not working (but looking for work), and because when I applied I lived with my boyfriend, I had to include his income. He was disabled and did not get much from social security every month, and I felt badly that he was paying for my food. His income was very low and meant for one person to survive, but I was denied the stamps. I really think it is not fair. I made NO money and he was on a very small fixed income. Maybe it is just due to the rules and regulations of my state, but it seems that the criteria to qualify is much too tough. I really could have used the help, then and now. I just don't feel like going through that lengthy questionnaire process again now that my boyfriend has died. As of today I am still out of work too.

Cassie: I think you should do it again. It took me a year to get them, mainly because I have trouble rounding up paperwork and connecting with them for the phone interview. This was my third attempt - it worked this time because i actually went in person to the interview with all the papers. The other two attempts were by mail, and i guess they are more inclined to decline you that way. I don't know why. I was so pleasantly surprised at how well the actual in person thing went. I am so happy to now have the ability to buy myself some food instead of relying solely on the food pantries!

What's nice about food stamps these days is that the money is all accessed from a 'credit card'. It just looks like you are swiping your plastic when you pay at the register. No actual stamps to deal with. It's not obvious in anyway that you are on food stamps, unless someone knows exactly what the food stamp card looks like.
