so I got laid off months ago, haven't been able to find work and had been living hand to mouth on minimum wage anyway. I was down to my last 3 cans
of sliced carrots and just can't afford to borrow off anyone or have food at friend's houses too often, so i walked to the charity which helps poor
and homeless people and shamefully walked in to ask if they could help me.
They were lovely, really kind and nice, i had about 25 cans of soups, meats, and vegetables including chopped tomatoes, 500gm of rice, pack of
spaghetti, powdered soups, noodles, raspberry jam, tea bags, even a big bar of chocolate. I nearly cried i was so grateful. was really heavy to carry
home there was so much food.
They then said to me if I want a hot meal they start serving at 6:30pm, it's chicken casserole with roast potatoes tonight so call back, i thanked
them and said they had given me enough food to help me, but when i am back on my feet working I will pay you back, this is a loan to me. they smiled
and said any help for us is as needed as the help we give, just being good humans.
i was ashamed to seek help today but humbled by my help, i shall see if they need any help say washing up, cleaning or whatever as payback.
so has anyone else reached such a low you've had to do similar?
