An anonymous reader writes SFist with the following urgent request.

Do you or one of your writers know how to apply to get for food stamps? Might make a good post.

Funny enough, your editor was juuuust wondering the same thing the other day after purchasing a $4 bottle of kombucha tea. But in all seriousness, there's this. And this.

But can you, informed readers, help out this hungry reader with more details? Maybe tell us the easiest way to go about getting food stamps? Or tell us your story about obtaining them? Any other info on services and goods on the cheap c/o the government would be welcome too. (Unfortunately, most of you might need this information at some point this year.)
