This is for state of Arizona. Can they legally deny food stamps our exclude single women with no children from getting food stamps or health care. I thought food stamps were given by the dept of agriculture and not a welfare per se. Also, single men with no children.

That appears to be illegal under the SNAP program.
refers to households of one person, so single people are eligible for SNAP whether or not they have a child.

WIC guidelines also refer to a household of one, see
but eligibility for WIC, according to
requires that the applicant:

Is pregnant
Has had a baby (or been pregnant) within the last 6 months
Is currently breastfeeding a baby that is less than 12 months old, or
Is a baby, child or foster child under the age of 5

WIC and SNAP are both informally called food stamps, so I tried to cover both programs.
