Also, Angel Food Ministries offers low cost groceries. You order what package you want and pick it up at a designated site ( usually a church) I believe you can also order online now. You can get some great deals and they take food stamps/EBT You can get a box of groceries for 30 dollars and they offer additional boxes at varying prices. the website is http://www.angelfoodministries.com/

It used to be (and this I knew) 3 months of eligibility in a 36-month period of time. That part has been suspended due to the suckage of the economy. Since food support is a federally funded entitlement benefit, I'm sure that this would be true across all 50 states.

Also, I have referred some of my low-income clients to unemployment compensation even in cases where they've been fired or I just really didn't believe they'd get the benefit. I think that the UC has suspended or relaxed some of their requirements as well.

Also, unitedway.org has some really great resources for community-based agencies that can help with a variety of needs.

In response to the original question, I'd have to say two-week-old leftover bean dip mixed with rice. Either that or Kraft mac 'n' cheese with frozen broccoli mixed in (an effort to make it appear slightly healthier )

This thread and the talk of government cheese and peanut butter made me think of a recipe I found many years ago. It's good for when you don't have much on hand but want a snack. I haven't made them in a while but I remember them being pretty good. Just don't overcook them or they'll get too hard.

Peanut Butter Puffs

1 egg white
dash salt
6 Tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup peanut butter

In a bowl beat egg white and salt til stiff peaks form. Gradually add sugar; beating til stiff peaks form. Stir in peanut butter. Drop from teaspoon 1 inch apart on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 18 minutes til lightly browned. Cool slightly before removing from pan to cooling rack.
Makes 1 dozen.

I didn't have "real" pizza until I was at least ten years old. We had homemade pizza which was a slice of wonderbread, topped with a slice of American cheese, topped with a slice of tomato and a sprinkle of oregano toasted in the toaster oven.

You can make it with english muffins or bagels with tomato sauce and cheese-

My mom used to get those "pizza in a skillet" kits when I was small and make them with cottage cheese....OMG DISGUSTING!!

She never bought real milk....just powdered milk. I would only have it on cereal- with was usually just cornflakes.....because they are cheap.

She would never buy real sugar either......she only bought sweet n low because she was always on a diet. She would buy those unsweetened kool aid packets and tell me to put a pack of sweet n low in it. It was the nastiest sour drink ever.

I drank water.

I just didn't eat often time......no wonder I was a really skinny child

I thought school lunch was like gourmet food....I'm not kidding. Most of the hot, complete meals I got as a child came from the school cafeteria. No kidding.

They weren't....they were just cheap.


They probably got a big supply/surplus of it from the government.....and how else would you get school kids to eat that crap?
My mom worked in the school cafeteria one year when I was small. She still talks about how they would have to put one of those HUGE sticks of butter into every vegetable they made.....no wonder I liked their veggies so much, eh?
