Food Stamp Benefits / Food Pantries in Georgia
So here's my situation - my boyfriend and I live with a roommate. The roommate makes quite a bit more money than us, but other than the rent and utilities, does not pay for anything else - i.e. food. I've been cut down to 13-20 hour weeks at work, and what my boyfriend makes covers the rent and utilities and some groceries. I have credit card debt, student loan payments, and car insurance. I have paid my bills for the month but my boyfriend and I are having trouble getting money for food. I want to apply for food stamps or go to a food pantry in the mean time until I find another job/2nd job or I get more hours at work. How do I go about this? I've noticed on the applications that it wants the household income, which I think should include our roommates earnings, but I am not sure that he would be willing to provide that information, and like I said, he doesn't contribute to the food bill at all. Do I still include him? What if his income makes us not qualify? I'm just desperatey in need of some help right now. :/ Thanks in advance.
