$800 Food Money

You don’t get the cash, but you do get it in the form of Food Stamps. The Food Stamp Program was designed to help low-income families buy the food they need to stay healthy and productive. The amount of Food Stamps you get each month is determined by the number of people in your family and by the household income. The average benefit is about $71 dollars a month, but a 4-person household could get up to $408 a month. There are obviously income requirements you must meet. To apply for the Program, look in the blue pages of your telephone book under Food Stamps, Social Services, or Public Assistance. You can also find more information by contacting U.S. Department of Agriculture, Food and Nutrition Service, 3101 Park Ctr.
