The caseworker yesterday, erroneously told me that the only way for me to find out what my monthly food stamp allotment will be is to wait for a letter to come in the mail!
But I knew that, there are 3 phone #'s on the back of the ebt card. I tried 2 of them, and you are never going to believe this.
I have been awarded .33 a day! That comes to 10 dollars a month!
Melinda asked me the last time when I was getting the 15 a month why don't I just appeal! I waited a whole year to go in there, and I only went in because I have been forced to go to the mission for dinner and only about 10% of the time is the food pallatible enough (to my tongue) to be able to eat it.
Today, I went to the grocery store and treated myself to a Bolthouse farms mocha cappuccino ($3) and a banana. I have enough for a loaf of potato bread and 100% peanut butter as long as I buy the store brand (Kroger) which is quite good.
I told the cashier I get .33 a day. I said, if you had .33 a day to "blow" on food, what would you blow it on? He was stumped.
Then, they ask you if you are "playing monopoly"
I replied I've never been a gambler but maybe it's time to start!
