Food stamps

I just learned that a family of four on food stamps gets $68 a month more than we have budgeted for our family of four.  I would like to increase my food budget, but that would mean I’d have to reduce my tax withholding (as we have a zero-based budget each month,) which means that I would have to end up paying taxes in April so people on food stamps can continue to (theoretically) eat better than our two-earner working family does.
