And after rising modestly in the last month, the average monthly benefit per household dropped again to a post April 2009 revision low of $282.38/month.

  1. I am a single mother and I get foodstamps..(snap) I used to get 400 something per month, now I get 300 something per month. Its so frustrating to have to rely on snap, but nowadays it is impossible for 99 % of the population to get by on one income. The best thing about my foodstamps is I go to TraderJoes and buy grass fed beef and organic vegetables. Theres a farmers market right next to me but unfortunately they do not accept snap.
