When we are out of work, we usually don't have as much money coming in as we did before. Some of us have even struggled to put food on the table for our families after paying the rent and/or a car payment. We are forced to tuck away our pride and go to DSHS to see if we qualify for food stamps. To avoid going to DSHS and waiting for your name to be called, DSHS has provided a means to calculate if you are eligible. Here is the link to the DSHS calculator, http://www.dshs.wa.gov/esa/tec/
