Even though the food stamp program helped both my husband and myself put ourselves through college, I had thought college students no longer qualified for food stamps. Apparently that's true, unless the student is receiving state or federal work study money.
My son heard us talking over winter break about how food stamps helped us through college, he looked it up, realized he might qualify, applied recently, and will now be receiving $150 a month in food stamps. His parents will still be eating rice and beans though.
Thought others might not be aware of the availablity of this additional "financial aid."
