  • Check your local food banks and any churches you may or may not be affiliated with.

  • Your town should have a food pantry, prob. run by one of the local churches. Also google angelfoodministries.com. They help out with food. You probably have a location near you. Talk to your church if you are affiliated with one. Many times churches have discretionary budgets that allow them to temporarily help needy parishioners. God bless you and good luck! Also consider applying for food stamps.

  • Contact your local United Way. They can direct you to services in your area.

  • I bet your food bank will be able to help you. Also try some local churches. Even if you aren't a member a lot of them will help people in their community.

    I'm so sorry you are going through this.
