While I was attending school full-time I applied for food stamps. At that time I was told that I didn't qualify because I was a students and in order for me to qualify I would need to have a job. This is a serious issue because full-time as a student is classified as such because you are expected to spend 40+ hours a week on schoolwork. Therefore, adding in a job on top of that would mean that i would be working 60-80 hours a week before I could qualify for food stamps. This would have drastically cut into my education. As a full-time student these kids need to be focusing on their education and many are unable to due to this stupid requirement that they need to have a job outside of school to be worth feeding.
