Does getting food stamps affect your tax return?

I have a few questions. My husband just got laided off and took a local full time job which isn't even close to the amount that he was taking. I am currently in nursing school and I can't work at all and take care of our 2 children. I applied out of curiosity and was granted food stamps $650/month which... show more I have a few questions. My husband just got laided off and took a local full time job which isn't even close to the amount that he was taking. I am currently in nursing school and I can't work at all and take care of our 2 children. I applied out of curiosity and was granted food stamps $650/month which is way more than we ever spent on groceries. Fact of the matter is we can't eat that much food. I don't know whether or not to use the food stamps because I am highly depending on our tax returns next year. My question is does food stamps affect tax returns? What I was thinking was that we can use what we need to use and then use the rest of the money to buy canned goods and drop off to the Salvation Army. Should we just use what we need to use or would you donate the rest? Thanks everyone!
