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.
