  •  I think getting the max amount of SNAP (3+ / 0-)

    per family size might be enough for most families. I'm on SNAP as a single person and at first there was an error and I got close to the maximum. I am naturally thrifty, true, but I could get by on it fine. Better than before I was on SNAP (but I'd cut back as far as I can).

    SO for me, just one anecdotal story, I could get by fine. Problem is they rarely give people the full amount. Perhaps they could relax there requirements so more people got the full amount. It felt right to me.

    Now I get less of course. I'm getting by but in the stereotypical way of too many carbs to be healthy, at least for me.
