Can you apply for food stamps if you live in a different state?

I am a resident of Alabama.  I will be going to university in Illinois, but will keep my Alabama residency. Do I apply for Alabama food stamps since that is where my permanent residence is...or Illinois since my bills (utilities, rent, etc) are being paid to the state of Illinois

    Students apply in the state where they attend school. Your college should have information on this. You can also use food pantries in the area.
