I want to know why, in this day and age, my child can get free breakfast and lunch at school, I can get a free government issued cell phone, Free NYS health insurance, and my ex is NOT a deadbeat dad, YET I DO NOT QUALIFY FOR FOOD STAMPS???

So, what they're telling me is, that if I sat on my ass and did NOTHING or my ex WAS a deadbeat dad, I'D QUALIFY FOR FOOD STAMPS?????

Someone please explain this to me because I'm a bit confused?

(FWIW I did NOT indicate what my race was on the application.)

because you have too much money coming into your household to qualify...

Yes, pbb, I udnerstand that. If you knew my income you'd wonder why I even bother to get up in the morning.

Just for grins and giggles, I went back thru the online calculator, and made my rent $2000 a month, and I STILL didn't qualify. So, conceivably, I can pay more rent than my INCOME yet I still don't qualify?

This country is so screwed up.

There's no edit button? darn..

YOu'd think I"d qualify for food before I qualified for a free phone and health insurance. It's all just totally Bass Acwards.
