Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get some money for food? Before anyone says anything.. I'm on disability and my check doesn't come in till next Friday. I had extra expenses this month for school supplies for my child and doctors appointments.

    👍 I don't know where you can get money, but there are many locations to get free food. I go to two churches and I get meat, veggies, snacks, bread and desserts. Local Social Services has a complete list for everyone. Also, I just applied for food stamps, because of the rise in all prices! Good luck.

    I don't drive. I'm on a wait list for a delivery. I get $20 for food stamps. Thank you for your help though

    Call 211 They have a lot of resources and I know of some churches that will deliver for shut ins You may want to call the food banks and see if they deliver as well I also know that the food banks will let you have a representative if you don’t drive I have had friends do that for me since I lost my ability to drive 2 years ago due to my disability. I live in NC but I’m sure all areas have the same policies or resources for people who can’t drive!

    Maybe a friend or family member can help until you get your disability check?

    I agree! A lot of people do not drive. There are other avenues to get there, like the bus. Here because of Covid, the bus rides are all free. Social Services knows how to contact "Meals on wheels" or something like that. They deliver hot meals and cold ones to you. Don't give up looking. Your on the right track!

    Check and see if your county has a community chest program. You can call in an emergency need and in most cases they will help you out. We have used ours several times. Also, food pantries. Call 211 to get a list of pantries near you. Many churches will also help out. Help is out there. I pray you find some! God bless! Listen to this song. It always helps me! https://youtu.be/tIZitK6_IMQ
