Q) How old do you have to be to apply for food stamps
A) If you are suffering from a lack of adequate food and nutrition you are entitled to apply for food stamp or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits. Your age does not matter. If you’re under the age of 18 and living with your family, then your family has the right to apply for food stamps if the household income falls below the program poverty wage limit.
