This is fairly specific but it was posted and the Administration thought that it was important enough to post it here.

Thank you for your wonderful response. I have some thoughts floating around but first, I need to say: APPLY FOR THE FOOD STAMPS NOW. Sorry to yell but I feel the need to more than suggest you do this.

You do not need to wait until you apply for disability and all of that. It's a separate application. You won't know until you apply but I can bet you do, given you are unemployed. You can even apply online. I goggled food stamps in VT and found this web site about Vermont's food program. Here is a link.
