Food stamp benefits increase about $20 per person

More than 1.8 million Floridians will receive an increase in food stamps starting today as part of the federal economic stimulus.

Food stamp benefits will go up by about $20-$24 a person per month. All food stamp households will benefit.

In February, 1,863,588 Floridians received food stamps — 31% more than in February of 2008.

It's good that there's at least a couple of results being seen from the stimulus package. Many have been doubting that it's just another government scam but here we are with an increase in food stamp benefits, among a couple of other improved programs.

I am a single mom and raising my grandchild as well and was told I don't qualify for food stamps at all. But if I didn't work and sat home and did nothing I would qualify for all kinds of help!!! What is wrong with that....
