The discounts/advantages and qualifying income and asset level vary from state to state.
So check with the state where you reside to find out the details.

The easiest way to do that is to look in your phone book's blue (government) pages. Go to the section for state government. The first number should be for General Information. Call them and ask who you should talk to for poverty assistance.

In AZ, for example, it's the Department of Economic Security.

BTW, $20k per year would be a nice increase for me. I live on much less!

As do I. And I'm renting! <g>

A while ago, on Organic Living, a Fool posted a link for finding a Community Supported Agriculture farm in your area:

There is one near me, and I've even found someone to go "halvsies" with me on 1/2 share. (1 share feeds 4 people.) Emailed the gal to ask if she had a way to "match up" singles and she said, this is only the first year they're doing this, but she'll keep it in mind for future seasons.

Anyway, it's not exactly cheap, but it's not overly expensive, either, at least not in my area. You get to put in your preferences for what types of fresh food you'd like. Then, it gets delivered to you weekly. It's a way of supporting community efforts, eating organically (if you like that kinda stuff), plus you can save on gas by having (some of) your groceries delivered! Caveat: dunno if other CSAs work the same as this one does. Still new to the genre....
