Earlier this week i got a letter saying my food stamps of 159 went up to 160 after the government cancelled my "meal on wheels"...i called and they said it was no joke it was only going up by the 1 dollar... i informed them that my rent went up and they said my benefits would go up a couple more dollars...i said thank you and thought it ened there..... NOPE! i get a letter saying my benefits of $160 are now $132...NOT KIDDING!!! I get $718 in disability benefits a month and NOW $132 in food stamps... and thats it!!! I will got to the food pantry but i dont have a car so i cant go that much.... are you figuring out why i am writing....what the helll do i do????? Serioursly, what do i do!!!

State and federal assistance programs are both administered by the state. Iowa Legal Aid is at 1-800-532-1275. Good luck, they do want to help.
