Quoting Ur Local Frnt Desk Clrk:" illegal and if you have enough extra at the end, that means you don't need it, and should ask for a reduction in benefits."
I sometimes coupon enough where we have lots leftover... so we either buy higher grade meat or big boxes of stuff like couscous, rice, etc... that is a bit more pricey in the big containers. But if we still have some leftover I get some food for SO and his son. Honestly, he would be eligible for foodstamps since the mother of his child is a frickin deadbeat but hes too proud to ask. Sucks.
I dont see it as too wrong though, as those times are rare and it only happens because we couponed enough to get extra leftover. But asking for a reduction would mean some months us being short because you cant always coupon awesome (extreme couponers make me think they have NO life to accomplish what they do!).
