He has Child Protective Services checking in on him regularly to make sure he spent the Food Stamp money on his kid.
We have another co-worker in the same situation ($100K+ and required to spend money on Food Stamps or CPS comes down on you....)

My co-worker has tried to refuse the Food Stamps, but has been rejected; and he’s afraid of the CPS people. They can take your kid.
