    • You are recently divorced and had to move out of the home you shared with your ex-husband and two children. You are now living on your own but you have worked out an agreement where the kids come spend three-day weekends. As part of the divorce agreement, you will be receiving $600 per month from your ex-husband for the next year. But, after paying rent on your new apartment, there’s very little money left for food and bills, so having FoodShare Employment Training (FSET) in order to receive your food benefits because you don’t have full custody that would except you from the work requirements.
