A family of 4 in Fl gets 367 cash and 668 in food stamps. They eat better than I do...

I think my husband figured we would get something around $900/month in food stamps for our family of six. We don’t spend that much on food, toiletries, cleaning/paper products, and pet food combined!

We eat a lot of chicken, ground beef, and buy pork loin roasts and cut them up for good pork chops. Steak is a rarity in our house. We just put in a huge garden with tomatoes, onions, beans, squash, peppers, cucumbers, watermelons, cantaloupe and corn. After seeing the price for produce lately, it will be a welcome relief, because our four kids love fruits and veggies. Our neighbor keeps threatening to give us a few chickens, lol.
