For me, there isnt anything worse than waking up to a house with no food.
I havnt dealt with this in over 12 yrs, when i was little and my mom couldnt provide.
Now, I am living with roomates, currently out of a job and soon to be a mom. No money or help from the government(lack of identification) and completely reliant on others.
Well, a few days ago, our microwave broke and no longer heats up.
With that in mind, sure, i can cook on the stove.
But, easy meals CANT be cooked on a stove. Therefore taking out frozen dinners and anything else i dont have time(30 mins or more) for the stove. It is frustrating.
Next is the fridge. It has been broken once before, but was"fixed". Now, it too is gone and no money for another.
That takes out most of my WIC.
The house is hot constantly and all i have is a box fan that DOESNT COOL ME OFF.
The bathtub: someone poured HOT GREASE down the drain.
The main food in the house is: macaroni; and various other noodles.
I havent eaten a solid meal in over a week. (peanut butter sandwich, and oatmeal.)
I am frustrated that my life has fallen apart.

  • Thinking about your true needs & priorities, are you able to get by? Do you need help?

    We live well but don't use a microwave (because it's not healthy).
    No A/C here, we find other routes...
    Do you use a cooler?
    Have you tried freecycle or craigslist for a "new" fridge?
    If you would like some ideas let us know!
