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.

For the first time in 13 years, my kids are spending Thanksgiving (or any other) day with their Dad all together in Florida. That leaves me all be my lonesome. I've already spoken to folks about working at a local food bank for part of that day, but any other suggestions on how to make it festive?
