I wrote a hub about using the food shelves and the great need for them.
I use them when I need it.
Have you used them?
Many years ago. My X by 2, had gambled the mortgage payments away. I didn't find out till the house was about to be repossessed. My son was only four months old at the time. I dumped my fella, rented some really crappy accommodation and was harassed for months by bailiffs for debts I didn't even know we had. I went to the food bank and they really helped me at the worst time. I'm very fortunate, I don't need a food bank now, but I know that lots of other people do and they shouldn't feel bad about it. Life throws these things at you, but you get through.
I love the idea of the US having Food Banks. In the Philippines, we have nothing, absolutely nothing to compare with that. Our urban poor could really benefit from a lot of the social welfare services you have. I hope someday the Philippines will also have things like Food Banks to help our people.
