Thank God for them. My husband hasn't worked since June, (he just went back this week), and my salary wasn't enough to cover all of the bills, let alone food for my family. Glad we were eligible, but hope to get off soon.

I posted a comment earlier that stated, rules for the food stamp program are implemented differently from county to county i.e., a senior citizens food stamps were cut because her gas utility had been shut off because she couldnt afford to pay it. Yes, the program works for some, but not for all.
