Yes there are people who take advantage and don't want to help themselves but a lot of people have jobs and still need help. You should not be so judgemental, it's really hard for some people to ask for help or tell people that they have food stamps because of people like you, they shouldn't be ashamed to say that they receive help!

Needing assistance or wanting to feed your family does not necessarily mean you do not know how to cook or do not have a job, I have a job and I am in the Military and still need some help. At the end of a month sometimes you are out of the staples as well as other things that you need to get by, and does not mean you are accepting a free ride some people getting the assistance pay into the same system that helps them everyday. Same as the people who do not need the help. Try to be proactive in educating yourself and not make stereotypical statements such as you made here.

No one wants a child to go hungry, but the parents have to be more proactive here. Start buying staples and learn to cook. A box of bisquick, a carton of dry milk, a few boxes of mac and cheese for times when there are problems. It is incomprehensible that the article describes a woman upset that she cannot get a food order, and neither can her family and friends. Does she know anyone with a job? Education is free in this country, use it. There are no free rides, stop depending on others to feed your child and depend on yourself to be brave.
