If you were hungry and had no food, would you go to a food bank?


Hate to say it, but it is personal question. Would you do it because you need food, or would you based on some other reason, wait until you get your unemployment check which is in 5 days?

    Yes, I helped out at a Christmas Day free lunch for the "down-and-outs" one year. Yet, by the end of it I was literally disgusted at the numbers of families, kids, and everyone who were obviously well off..... there just through laziness!

    As it is, I'm by myself.

    It's only five days and I do not think I'll starve to death. So instead of using the little money I had for bus-fare to the food bank I bought oatmeal.

    Times like this inspires me to write.

    I found that it is a deeply personal experience, and that I had to do what would help me feel better about myself, so I walked to my nearest supermarket and used the bus-fare I would have used to get to a food bank and back.

    Thanks! As soon as my check gets here I'll buy a bigger box of oatmeal, with fixings for salads.

    Just got back.

    I looked at my bus fare, then I looked at the list of food banks, and decided to buy cheap oatmeal and sugar. I'm by myself, but I have done the food banks before for my family.

    Today I keep my pride....

    Seriously not raggin' on you, but I think you just called yourself irrational! No shame in going (true), but you'd sooner starve than go to one? Not sure I understand.

    I made the call to a food bank this morning.

    For myself I had a dilemma: use my bus-fare to get food from a food bank that might turn me away or buy oatmeal and hang on for 5 days.

    I hope to never make that decision again.
