I make too much money to qualify for food stamps, but I can't AFFORD to buy groceries. Does anyone have any ideas of what I can do to be an exception on the food satmps salary scale?
Closed

Can I show them the many disconnection notices, that I recieve from gas and electric? Can I show them my friggin fridge that has had one onion and condiments in there for six months? Thankfully, I can afford to buy dog food! But I don't think its fair! They turn me down, yet I can't go grocery shopping! There is so much peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and tuna I can eat!

Check out if there is a food bank or survival center in your area that might offer a food service or program you can qualify for.

Is there something that you're spending your money on that you could cut back on? Did you show them ALL your expenses? Everything you spend your money on?

Canceling your internet service would certainly give you some food money. Look for a part time job or a better job. Start your own home based business. Many towns and counties have a food bank to help folks who can't afford enough food. Plant a garden. If you are a member of a Church, check with your minister to see who can help you. You have to be responsible for yourself and not expect anyone to give you something you have not earned. Beans and rice and hard work.

Is there any place around where you live that has a food bank. At my baptist church we have a food bank storage room. All of our members, which is about 400, bring can goods and various food items for people who are in need and this helps out a lot. Check with your county's Social Services Department and see if there is one near by. I wish you lots of luck because, as a christian person, we are suppose to help each other. Also, don't forget to keep praying and trusting in God. I wish you the best and I hope the info. above will be useful for you and don't be ashame to ask about a food bank near you. Good Luck.

Eat more simply! It doesn't cost alot to eat vegetables, pasta, soup, crackers, cereal, ect. Plus the simpler food are healthier and more natural. I eat alot of Ramon noodles with vegetables which is extremely cheap and ceral in the morning...YOu can eat for less than $20/ week if you do this!

Have you tried going to a food shelf or the salvation army? They dont care about people. If you make so much income in a certain period, blah, blah blah. Ya, we are supposed to save up extra money for food too!

Another good place to search for would be Lifeline Ministries = they are in most states (usually located at a facility connected with a church).
Catholic Charities is another good one to look for.
ALWAYS, when you are able to shop, definitely purchase buy 1 get 1 free.

1. Do a pc search for your local food pantries.
2. Call churches (any denomination/religion) they can also let you know where food pantries are located, some even have their own, & may help with utility bills if you have disconnection notice(s).
The food is FREE, no qualifications to meet, just let them know how many are in your household.
3. You can also call your county offices & ask where you can get some food (should tell them you do not quality for food stamps, but are behind in utility payments)
