Amanda Clayton, a 24-year-old from Lincoln Park, Michigan, is one of the few who does, and she is getting away with it. Clayton won $1 million from the Michigan State Lottery this fall, but she is still collecting and using $200 a month in food assistance from the taxpayers with her Michigan Bridge Card.

She owns 2 houses and won 1 million and thinks she is entitled to food stamps.
What more can anyone really say about her except utterly ridiculous she could pay off both houses have the cash to "eat".

in ny, even if your mom gives you 20 bucks, you are supposed to report it...now she can take that 20 go buy whatever you want, and you don't have to report that.....
so yes...I think she broke the law...
Eligibility for food stamps is based on gross income and follows federal guidelines; lottery winnings are considered liquid assets and don't count as income.
