This is Aly. She is 38 years old and is homeless. She is unemployed but enjoys helping others. She went college at UNC, which caused her to take out a student loan. After she graduated, she had a really hard time finding a job. She quickly fell into debt.
A friend recently told Aly about food stamps, so Aly looked into it . She learned that the purpose of food stamps are to providing improved levels of nutrition among low-income households. The program provides a EBT which allows you to buy nutritious food at select stores. Aly also learned that in order to be eligible for food stamps if you are a household of 1, your net monthly income must be $981 or less.
Now that Aly has some food, this has given her hope for a future. Aly is determined to find a job and to get back on her feet. Aly's friend who told her about food stamps offered her a place to live until she gets back on her feet.
