The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) assists low income individuals with affording food. Historically, the assistance was paid in the form of stamps or vouchers. Because of this, the program is sometimes known as food stamps. In more modern times, the stamps were replaced with a debit system known as EBT.

Can your GA food stamps card be used in LA?

Yes. You can use your foodstamp card in any state just as long as you don't forget your pin #. I live in Nebraska last year I traveled to Kansas and Missouri and I used my foodstamp card in both of those states while I was on vacation.

Does survivor death benefits affect food stamps?

Yes. All earned or unearned income will affect any AFDC/Cash Aid/Food Stamps or Medi-Cal/Medicaid case. Social Sec benefits wether paid directly to you or as death benefits from a spouse or child would be counted as unearned income. If the Soc. Sec. were disability based benefits, such as a child receiving benefits because of a parents disability that would be considered earned income. In this case though it will probably affect your food stamps more then the cash. The food stamp amount that was determined decades ago has not increased. I would have to do some research but I believe that they use a formula something like 3$ a day per person to figure amounts. Give or take...and we all know that in this day 3$ for a day of food for one person is not going to get u very far, unless u order from the value menu 3x a day and only order one item with water..LOL

Where does extreme poverty take place?

Extreme poverty takes place all over the world. It is not only found in the "third world," like in many countries of Africa and Asia where children can be seen openly starving in the streets and eating scraps. It also happens in all other points of the globe.

Contrary to a popular misconception, poverty and hunger are not restricted to only the "undeveloped nations." There is extreme poverty in all parts of the world, even in North America and in the United States where homeless and hungry children are increasing in numbers and more openly and obviously in need. As in other parts of the world, the destruction of the economy and loss of jobs have increased the numbers of the impoverished and hungry in the US, too. Americans have traditionally willingly supported the unfortunate with our donations and tax money. We would continue to have our taxes feed the hungry, and could, if the politicians were working for the people instead of mostly only the rich people and big corporations.

In the USA, Congressional budget cuts to social assistance and food programs (e.g., SNAP) for those in poverty, are not supported by the majority of US citizens. However, due to the continued lobbying by the rich and big corporations for very large reductions in taxes for them and for relative increases in taxes on the lower segments of US economic status; inflation, causing a lowering of the buying strength of the minimum wage to no longer provide a living wage regardless of hours worked; and, due to the national budget choices of the Republican members of the US House of Representatives, many of those previously developed assistance programs are now being reduced or eliminated. Poverty among US citizens has reached shameful heights as these policies are approved and implemented by our Congress.

It is a good question to ask, and ask often, of yourself, your community, of world leaders and politicians; but, try not to ask only where, but why there is so much more hunger and disadvantage to large segments of the world population now. Many believe that this results partially from a reduction in help for the needy on the one hand, and vast and ugly greed, increasing the overabundance and wealth of a few on the other hand. The disdain for the poor, shown by a large component of the 2% of the wealthiest in the US, and their perceived total lack of any sense of Noblesse oblige and concern and empathy for those less fortunate, is obscene.

We should not stay blind to the realities of the growing poverty and the influence some of the most wealthy people and big corporations have on law and governments and with capturing and keeping the wealth, providing little, if any, help for the poverty-stricken, all over the world.

Can you buy whey protein shake with food stamps?

To my shock and surprise yesterday when I swiped my EBT card on the ring up of a Super Advanced Whey Protein mix, it approved it. So YES! you can use food stamps on protein shake.

I'm guessing the rule is, if it's consumable and it has a nutrition facts label on it, it's deemed food.

If you marry an illegal immigrant and have children can you lose benefits such as Medicare and food stamps?

No, in fact, the illegal alien becomes legal. Anyone who marries an American citizen OR green card holder will become legal. No questions asked.

If you receive government benefits, marrying an illegal alien will not stop that. The illegal alien himself cannot receive those benefits but his US citizen spouse and/or US citizen children can as long as they qualify. This could hurt the process of getting him his greencard in the future, however, since the US citizen spouse has to prove that she can support the alien. If she has been on welfare, she obviously hasn't been supporting him and this could make it so he can't get his greencard. Do not use government benefits unless they are absolutely necessary to feed your children. Try to maintain your family on your own.

When I married my husband they told me I had to sign papers that my family would not be eligible for food stamps. I I think it is an attempt to keep families from working the system which I completely agree with and I was actually quite happy that the government was doing something about the people coming here just to live off the money that we work so hard for.

Is it illegal to lie on food stamp application?

Yes, it is considered fraud. If you are successful in obtaining food stamps based on false information, you can be prosecuted. See the link below. A quote from that page, 'Unlawful possession or use of food stamp benefits in an amount of $100 or more is a felony; less than $100 is a misdemeanor.' The amount of your offense would be the total amount of the benefits that you received fraudulently.
