Like I said, realistically, I don't expect someone to starve to death or let their kids go hungry. If public assistance is the only way, go for it. Don't think my heart doesn't hurt for those people, it certainly does.
More government is not the answer.

Anyone can walk into (or call, or apply online) for food stamps- claiming they are homeless, and get expedited assistance that day. My husband had a DHS employee in his store the other day telling them this. That’s a double edged sword, because it is very easy to scam (they can’t “check” if you’re homeless, just have to take your word). However, for those that find themselves in dire straits, it can be a huge blessing.
