Just found out from Stephen Gardner on his youtube feed that another food stamp bill is looking to be passed…a consensus vote was passed last night so all that has to happen is a vote now…I hope it passes…

Before the Covid crisis I was getting just almost enough to pay for my monthly groceries when I got my monthly SNAP benefits. Then, when Covid hit, I really got a windfall in SNAP benefits. I bought $85.00 off my card and donated it to the local food pantry, and I still have more SNAP benefits than I actually need. Before the Covid landfall I was getting most of my protein from sandwiches in the freezer at the Dollar Tree. Prices are going up there, so I might need to keep SNAP benefits in reserve. Also, I have found some slightly more expensive, but much tastier sandwiches in Walmart. I try to keep my spending at just a little above a dollar per sandwich.

Wow. Thats a lot for 2 people. We only get $876 a month SSI and just $500 a month SNAP for 7 people. I assumed from your posts you were really hurting.

That seems really low for a family of seven. I’m sorry you don’t get more help @ZombieMombie.

No worries. We’ve gotten extra with COVID relief. And there’s food pantries. And i know how to stretch as dollar.

We rarely do any extras, but I have gotten some treats with taxes!
