Well, yes $$$$$ is tight but SO wants me to sign up for "Christmas buerau" (spelling) (he only wants to get the food) sadly yes food IS tight!
After we pay the bills the rest of the $$$$ is for food. ($200 FS isn't enough for a month for 3people.)
Welfare might not want to "think" Jeff is "living here" but he is! A 3rd person does live here! Not "only 2people". Smfh.
:(
So yes, I'll have to do that "poor family Christmas program" just for food. (sigh)

You should try different churches around your area. I know some in our town have it where you can come in a get food from the food pantry. My mil's church hands out a bag of groceries once a month. Good luck girl! HUGS

I know.
But you've all heard me yell & vent about how "junkies/druggies take they're babies out in the cold weather & wait good 2 or 3hours in the cold."

:((

.
But ugh! We're not even over the hump for help here.
(we're trying.)

Oh there are but up here (they make you stay one place & one place only.)

My cousin in GA, she found a food pantry that if you give them $10 they give you like $30 or $40 plus in food & diapers & other house hold stuff. (there's $10 boxes or "free boxes".)

I have had to use it a few times in the past.. And for once I am in a position where I don't need it... But I am happy it's there. I was hoping this year to adopt a family or child.. A few years ago on cm I was adopted and if it wasn't for this lady my kids would have had nothing.
