Struggling to put healthy food on the table for your children, or being on foodstamps to supplement until your situation gets better?
In the past 5 years, my family has been on and off foodstamps while my husbands' income has fluctuated from 1200 per MONTH to over $4000 per month. Currently, we recieve foodstamps because he went from making $25 an hour (Union Roofing company went belly up) to making $8.50 an hour... I'm not proud of it, but I am extremely grateful that it's available and thankful my kids can eat healthy meals every day and I don't have to worry about them being underfed or malnourished...problem is, we're the only ones in both my and his family that get assistance and they make us feel really ashamed. Kinda pisses me off. My kids eat fruits and/or veggies at every meal and that is not something we could do with out having benefits. Why can't they just accept we're doing what we can to take care of our children??
