We already put in a petition for AOS with a joint sponsor, Can my husband (USC) apply for food stamps?

Asked 6 months ago - Denton, TX

My husband lost his job a month ago and is currently on unemployment benefit. He just told me that he'd like to apply for food stamps without listing my name as a recipient. I'm on a visa status. Will it affect my AOS? I'm worried it might come up at my interview. Should my husband wait till after our interview before applying for food stamps? Will receiving unemployment benefit be a problem too? I'm so worried.

Additionally, my husband received food stamps before we got married. If he applies, I asked him not to include me in his application as a dependent. Will it affect my green card interview?
