So mil and her 3 teen boys are staying with us for a while, fil kicked them out.
Anyway mil went and got a food box and "shopped" their store. She brought back a ton of awesome food. This is not at all the food I remember my dad getting when I was a kid, like the cans of weird tuna and a block of cheese.
Dh and I are not on any sort of PA, we don't even qualify for food stamps. We generally do ok food wise but there are times we have to foregoe lunch so the kids can eat.
I still feel guilty going though. Like I'm using food ment for someone else. Mil would have no food for her kids right now if it were not for the food pantry, her last paycheck was before xmas and her husband gets the paycheck.

Using the food bank is not a norm for my family except for the rare times I went to visit my dad. Is this becoming more and more used by everyone?

We do. It's really hard to keep up with my sons diet of 3000 calories a day and not get a lil extra help.
