But food stamps is just one of the social services available and is considered a subsidy. I do not believe it is intended to be the only method you use to feed your family. You also have WIC, TANF, and NSIP. People getting food stamps may also qualify for unemployment, food vouchers, and direct cash assistance. Also, GET A JOB and pay your own way through life just like the rest of us.
