I was supposed to get my food stamps today. I tried to use my card and it was declined. I tried to call my caseworker but all the phone does is ring and ring. They don't have voicemail. I have tried maybe 10 times. I even tried to call her superior. The lady at the front desk could only tell me that my food stamps were up last month. If I remember correctly I had them for a year. It hasn't been a year yet. She couldn't tell me anything else. We have absolutely no food in the house and little money. Rent is due this week too so the money we do have we have to use towards rent. It just p*sses me off to no end.

If there was any change in your living and you didn't report it, they will cut you off. Even if a raise was given. The welfare don't mess around. Sorry your hurting. Have you tried to contact a church and tell them your story? They should help. Most churches do. Good luck!

I am sorry to hear that you are having a problem with your food stamps and hope it gets resolved quickly so that you and your family are able to eat. What are you going to do in the mean time? Keep trying to call your caseworker to see what is happening. There had to be some mistake on their end about your food stamps. I would be very upset too if they did this to me. Keep trying to get a hold of someone there and letting them know about it.
