I get $45 a week the picture is $38. I needed to save enough for milk and bread.
What's your disability? You didn't say. You have $200/week for food or what ever? Am I reading that right? You can obviously type on a computer keyboard, so there are jobs for you. You need to look harder.
A lot of people like to complain about the food stamp program so I figured I'd put things into perspective. The recent cuts took food off of the table for me and millions of Americans. $47 million dollars in cuts isn't much to most but for some of us it was a big chunk. Yeah yeah yeah you hear stories all the time that we on food stamps are eating prime rib and lobster every night.
Well heres a picture of what a regular week of shopping looks like for me. I can't afford chick beef or pork. I stay away from processed foods as much as possible. I don't like eat tuna because of the possible radiation from the Japan incident but I don't have much of a choice. I need something to eat for protein.
