I did apply for food stamps a while back. I was between jobs basically (short way of explaining it) so decided to go ahead and do it for the many reasons I stated.
However, when you start to go through the process, a few things happen... First, they take ownership of you, setting requirements and placing demands on your life, including home inspections, etc. Second, they take ownership of your children, requiring public school education, and setting various requirements.
Both of these things creeped me out greatly and so I let them keep my money. Giving them more control over my life to get my money back, just didn't seem like a good trade off.
But that is another one of their tricks. They steal your money, and make you swear fealty to give you even a small portion of it back.
