Emergency! Help me please!

I am not well off,. so I don't have a ton of food--and I don't have a ton of money-

so, I need your help. I know someone that is worse off, and I can afford maybe 8 bucks to help-they need food, and I mean there isn't a morsel left in their house. They won't ask for help, and don't qualify for assistance.
They are non drinking non drug using, and are working full time but bills are greater than what they can handle right now....due mostly to utility bills and cold weather.

So, with 8 bucks, what would you go buy for them to help get them through for a week? It's a fam of 5, 2 adult,3 kid

  • I would go to a food bank in an instant, for them....but they won't go. They act like everything is fine, but I know it isn't. I can tell....they are either too proud to go or they have foolishly convinced themselves that everything is ok.....

    I know better.
