Have you ever...

wondered where your next meal was coming from? I can't count the number of times growing up we didn't know what we were going to eat the next day or even the next week. Or I remember having nothing in the house but beans that we boiled and put salt pepper in then mashed them and that's what we would eat for days and weeks at a time. I'm so glad not to be in that situation now. What about you?

  • I was homeless at one point living in a bus. I ate dollar store meals. Luckily I wasnt in that position for very long. Now, money is tight, but we always have food.

  • I was sooooo there. I have never been able to qualify for food stamps even when we were homeless. I will never go back which is why even though my husband can fully support us, I still work from home.

  • No. And I am so grateful for that. It breaks my heart to hear that others live that way.
