Social Services

My food stamps haven't come through yet. They usually drop at midnight on the first of the month for me. It's probably because I was late filing my re-certification paperwork. If it doesn't show up by Monday I will call my case worker and respectfully ask what happened. I might have been bumped to a later drop date, some people get their SNAP on the 3rd.

Strangely enough my cash disability benefit did drop today. That usually shows up after 9am on the 3rd of the month. Unless there is a holiday. Is there a holiday on Monday?

Comments

No, no holiday. No congressional budget trickery. I'm guessing just a bureaucratic oversight. Monday's the 3rd, may they show up soon.

I used to use a group called Angel Foods to help my friend Karen buy food when times were very tough for her. They are no longer doing a food ministry but this group is very similar. The nearest host site is in Cantor which is not so very far away. You order online and pick up your box once a month. They take food stamps.

Re: This might be helpful to you

I looked into those programs before. Part of the problem is that I think I can get better bargains shopping myself. The boxes include a lot of prepared foods that are more expensive then what I usually buy.

That said I'm currently looking into a subsidized CSA that also takes food stamps.

Of course if I don't get my food stamps that will really be a problem. They haven't come through yet and I called my case worker and left a message.
