you find yourself in a bind? This month I had 3 medical bills I had to make payments on plus all my other regular bills. I have ten dollars to last for the next two weeks until payday again. I my frig I only have carrots, milk and condiments. I have two loaves of bread, rice and beans. I went to the local food pantry but they are out of food until the 5th of next month. I can not go to the emergency food bank until next month. You can only go once every three months. What do I do now to feed my4 kids?Answer Question

Thanks for the suggestions! As for food stamps we make too much because I have a child that is special needs and he receives SSI. There are no soup kitchens in our area either. We live in a small town with less than 4500.
My mother told me keep bugging the social services office but I can't force them to give me food stamps. Mother can't help she lives on a fixed income and can't afford to help.
I have never been so strapped for cash before. This is the worse feeling. I have really let my kids down. I feel like such a failure right now.
Someone suggested ebay but I don't know how to do that.

This is what I have done so far; I called and had my gas bill taken off of the budget program since I am ahead in payments, I tried calling my elec/water company but they were no help, the doctor bills can not be combined (hospital, labs, and doctor) I've been making payments but they were not happy that it has taken so long and gave me a dealine to have them paid off, I applied for the financial aid from the hospital and still waiting back on that, can't cancel cell phones until January and satelite until the end of November because of darn contracts. I do go to church and asked the church for help but it has to go to a committee for a vote first.
I had a garage sale over the summer and earned $250 that I used to stock the cupboards and buy wipes and diapers. Our food stock has withered down to what I stated earlier.
