    to India. Family and Services. I know, I talked to the Indians on the phone. And they closed and actually hid the office for Children and Family Services, fired most of the staff.

        for Food Stamps at any rate, I can't speak for how they dealt with children. You fill out a form in their office on a computer, or at home, and that's it. If any questions come up your recourse is only a hearing which is scheduled for one of the few remaining staff people they have for this purpose. In their office there is one person who stands there in the middle of the floor when you come in and directs you to a computer. I don't think there's anyone to answer a question. Online it is all automated now. You can't speak to anyone. I spoke to someone in India a few years ago. For about 4-5 years for Food Stamps I have dealt with no humans in person.
