One in seven Americans receive food stamps. I'm writing a paper about it, and I was hoping that for at least one source, I could use testimony from one of you guys, if you're in the program. These are a few topics I'd like to hear about: How long have you been accepting food stamps? Do your age, gender, or physical limitations make finding work difficult? Are you currently looking for work? Have you ever used the benefits for non-food related items or services? Why do you receive them? What can you tell me about your experience with the process of acquiring your benefits? Thanks! If you'd like to help out but don't want to talk about it in front of the whole site, please shoot me a PM.
