(Who buys and eats together) Why does this matter?
For the SNAP benefit, DHHS requires a few people to apply together no matter what. A husband and wife must apply together. A dependent ages 22 or under that lives in the household must apply with their parent or guardian. However, outside of these two circumstances, two individuals living together, have to apply together, unless they do not buy and eat their food together. If they share their food, DHHS will need full information of both individuals, including personal information, income, and assets.
