From the comments it looks like half the DP is or has been on foodstamps.
If I can be frank, people face difficulties and have the right to take the help of whatever means are available to support themselves and their family. As for the self riteous people who are judging them, they are exactly the ideologues divorced from reality I despise.
So the answer to the OP is an emphatic YES! Anyone that tells you otherwise is not someone you should be listening to.
