So what you are saying is if I am in that situation my children and I should be more worried about the law and just deal with starving? I would just do it illegally if that is what I needed to do.

Time to figure out how to hunt, fish, and forage.

For fishing all you need is a tree branch, string, hook, and worm.

There are plenty of websites that will show you what you can get in your area.

Hunting is a little harder. Do you have a gun? You can also look up how to make traps for small game. You can also learn how to gut it on the web.

Hunting with no license? In the summer? What is legal to shoot this time of year?


I checked. She needs to take a hunter safety course. pay out $48 for a license (for fishing AND hunting) THEN she would need to live in the far Southern part of Florida-AND then she can hunt ONLY using a bow and arrow or a cross bow. Do you think she has one of those lying around? Each deer would cost her another $5 and she would need to know how to bucher it.


Because you can't just go out in the woods and freaking SHOOT things-you need to be licensed! And shoot only what is in season!

Then you are a fool. You go to JAIL for hunting off season. And the gunfire would be the give away.

Why doesn't she just steal food or burglarize her neighbors since that would be a sure thing, and not require her to go hunting. See problem solved.

Breaking the law by stealing and breaking the law by hunting out of season with no license are the same things!

who do you use as a cell phone company? Without a car you need a phone to call for help (wic, fs office, churches,etc. And hospital if something happens. Scary to think about.. But something you need to) is it prepaid?

I wish I lived closer so I could help with either some food or a ride. I hope some of these suggestions from everyone else can help you. I also agree with previous posters who have said to call TODAY, don't wait until Monday. Good luck!

I work in a Domestic Violence shelter and if you or someone you know is being abused you need to get help.  ALSO REMEMBER THAT YOUR COMPUTER CAN TELL YOUR ABUSER YOUR PLANS, PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND DELETE ALL INFORMATION THAT YOU LOOK UP IN REFERENCE TO LEAVING OR GETTING HELP.  Violence doesn't know any discrimination.  If you or someone you know needs help PLEASE call the National domestic violence hotline 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) or 1-800-787-3224 (TTY) whoever answers the line can direct you to a local shelter or answer any questions you may have.  Any Shelter is there to help women and child (and some also help male victims) get the counseling and any other help that they need to get through the difficult time.  Abuse can be Emotional abuse (name calling, putting someone down, or controlling who/what they see or do), Physical Abuse (hitting, kicking, biting, anything that causes physical pain), Sexual abuse (can also be from a spouse or otherwise intimate partner when it is a unwanted occurance.)  Leaving your partner is the most dangerous time, wait until he/she is gone and then pack whatever you will need and just leave.   Good Luck and Don't forget that help is never more than a phone call away 24 / 7 / 365.

What is Domestic Violence?
Domestic violence can be defined as a pattern of behavior in any relationship that is used to gain or maintain power and control over an intimate partner. Abuse is physical, sexual, emotional, economic or psychological actions or threats of actions that influence another person.

Yeah she is near the Ocala National Forest probably.  IDK the national parks regulations on hunting there but part of the problem is, at least according to my dad that parts of it are not that safe. You've got God knows what kind of anti-social redneck squatting in there. 

I find it funny that hunting off season with no license is acceptable-why not just shoplift. It's the same damned thing, and a good deal easier to do.

When she filed her dh was still in the home ... Des likes to not approve you instantly with 2 people living in the home .they screw off forever . Me and dh where in this situation about a year ago and they refused to help immediately , they made us wait 2 weeks . We where approved for 508$ for us 3 and only received 100$ we where told the computer and case worker lied . The des system sucks!! They should approve her for emergency food stamps immediately , but they may not believe her that he is gone or that things are as bad as they are . They might take their sweet time :( however w.i.c or one of these food banks should be able to help immediately while she waits .


Quoting KblazeMomOf2:

This... And ive never heard of anyone who qualifys leaving the office without their card and an amount.



Quoting prdmomnarmywife:

You need to call back and speak to a manager and tell them you need emergency food stamps NOW while they process your case . Explain you do not have any food , he left and you have to feed your kids . Tell them if they do not believe you to send a worker out there to look . They HAVE to give you immediate temporary food stamps while processing your case if your this bad off . If they refuse call the state office






Quoting courtneycra:
