No money for food and I'm not asking

Friday, December 05, 2014

First of all my daughter didn't get her food stamps and I have little money to buy some food so I'm not asking for any so I will just fast until I get paid hopefully by the end of this month. I did it before and lost a lot of weight and I know I can do it again. So keep me in prayer.

    Dear Darlene,

    Please ask. There is no shame in that. Call churches in your city. Many will have food pantries on certain days at certain times. When you call one who doesn't have, ask them if they know of any local resources they can refer you to.

    I use both, food stamps and pantries. There is no shame in that. I get whatever the pantries have, I am single but go to more than one; and then I spend my food stamp dollars on the stuff that pantries NEVER have, filling in the holes with food stamps. That way I can have fresh fruits and veggies that are healthy, rather than processed food.

    Also I take anything I'm given, but don't want, don't care for, or can't use, and pass it on to others. I find out what they like and give them that; and bag up the remainder and drop off at a local charity.

    So don't be squeamish about asking, and going to several, PLUS food stamps. It's all good. God loves you and wants you to feed your body His temple.

    Try to get some beans and rice! They will go a long long ways. I sure hope the funds come in soon and you can have the food that is needed. Prayers to you and your family! Check with your church too! I know this time of year there is hopefully places that can help. Bless you!

    Please check into food bank and also why your daughter did not get her food stamps. The end of the month is a long way for fasting. Catholic social charities here in n. Florida would help with food, utilities and other needs. There may be a Catholic Social Services in your area. Now, is the time of year people want to help but we need to ask when we need help. People are terrible mind readers...my prayers are with you

    Most cities have food banks for those who desperately need food. It is awfully early in the month for you to start fasting, so I suggest you go to a food bank. They have basic food, nothing fancy. I will be praying, but I strongly think that you need to get some food.
