Why do you need food stamps? You can't find work? But yes, if you've been paying taxes for 7 years, you should qualify for food stamps.

I hope this helps.



Employment Authorization Document, Forms I-688B or I-766: These forms are issued to persons who may or may not be eligible for food stamps.

The I-688B will be sufficient verification for these citations:

[RIGHT]Citation
Status
274a.12(a)(1)
Lawful permanent resident
274a.12(a)(3)
Refugee
274a.12(a)(5)
Asylum
274a.12(a)(10)
Deportation Withheld


[/RIGHT]


The I-766 will be sufficient verification if annotated with the following:

[RIGHT]A3
Refugee
A5
Asylum
A10
Deportation withheld
[/RIGHT]

If you don't qualify you should check local food banks. Contact local churches. If you have children your children should qualify. Good luck to you.

In case you haven't noticed, there's a lot of folks who can't find work right now.

Even those of us with educations and very strong work ethics are coming up empty! This has to be the worst financial crisis our nation has endured since the Great Depression.
