California on Foodstamps

Filed under: Uncategorized — urbandumpsterdiver @ 12:22 am

About 5 dozen microwave popcorn, some candy, chocolates, lemon bread, rye bread, gummy bears.

The candy I gave to my neighbors. It’s like crack to me, I can’t stop eating it, so out of the house it goes!

The high end bread, I’ll keep. Especially the parmesan rolls. Goes well with the pasta I made tonight. Pasta/red wine/salad/rolls – good meal!

I start another job in a couple of weeks. For now. It’s only a temporary job, but it’s better than nothing. I used to cry, lose sleep, worry, fret about money and how I was going to pay my bills. That type of stress AGES you in many ways.

Tomorrow I’m submitting a proposal to a grocery store to get on their distribution list as a food bank to pass out day old bread and good meat and produce that otherwise might have been thrown out. This way I can feed myself and a few other families who need it.

1 out of 5 people in California are on food stamps. Even now Costco takes food stamps. Isn’t that pathetic? We’re sending all this money to Haiti, Chile and these endless wars but we can’t take care of our own.

Something is really wrong with this picture.
