    It is entirely funded by the federal government under the United Stated Department of Agriculture. And no, there is no affect on any custody status or trying to collect repayment from an absent parent.

    If you get food stamps, the government will send you a credit card with a certain amount of money on it. The government pays for it. It does not affect the custody status of the children. They do not try to collect money from the other parent because they pay child support. If the other parent refuses then call support kids at 1-800-691-KIDS. They will help you get the money you deserve. Good luck.

    We, the taxpayers, pay for the food stamps. Food stamps is a federally funded program through our federal taxes.

    Food stamps are funded by federal taxes only.

    working people pay with their federal taxes and No custody is not based on wether you are receiving help from the state. ( I know this because I was raised by my father and step mother who were on welfare. My mother and step father both worked.) However, today you have to work to get help.
