i would pray that someone would show kindness to my children if that issue ever arose for us. When we moved into our townhouse 13yrs ago it was an average ''middle class'' neighborhood but the last few years w/the economic downfall things have just gotten crazy. .....
my mom works in a school cafeteria and said she sees kids that get the free meal program stash half of their food in their bookbag to take home for younger siblings :(

depending where u live the amount of foodstamps can be ludicris......My sister is unemployed w/2 children and gets $287 mo in foodstamps . thats only $74 a week, which breaks down to less than $1 per person , per day for food.......1lb of ground beef is almost $4

Oh I know! I have read that statistics say many families on fs end up needing to use a food pantry at the end of the month after their fs run out. Which is sad but hey gotta do what ya gotta do.

it just really sucks for the people who have no transportation to get to a food pantry. i know an older gentleman that is a vet...he has to walk 2miles to the nearest grocery store to use his foodstamps and the nearest pantry is 5miles away. When i see him walking ,i give him a ride but he never asks because he doesnt want to be a ''burden''......its a crying shame when a person puts their life on the line for their country & ends up having to go w/out food.

Hmm what about meals on wheels? Do they have one in your area? That is really sad though.

most meals on wheels programs require a doctor to verify that patient is unable to shop & prepare meals for themselves......
