Get in line behind the people that already get too much food from food stamps! They seem to be the only ones that can get MORE food! They should not be able to get food from food banks if they already receive food stamps, just my opinion!

No people on food stamps shouldn't get food from food bamks. But look at the economy in this area. So many people have lost their jobs, and food stamps help those people at least be able to feed their families. I just hope you don't need those services one day.

If you read what I said, I said those that all ready receive food stamps should get out of the way so the ones who are not on food stamps can get some food, ie from the food BANKS, pay attention DUDE! They are hogging and taking advantage!
It is for temporary assistance not for LIFE!

Then why don't you just march your butt down to the food banks and rack up? Didn't know anyone was stopping you.As far as people on food stamps taking advantage and hogging it all, maybe you should check out the rules, They may go by income and if they do people who already get food stamps may fall into that catagory whether you like it or not.

I don't go rack up because I buy my own food, and work and am not in the category of food stamps, but I have helped give it out and it is the same people over and over, and so is the electric assistance, they already get food stamps, TennCare, a check and next wait for it "free electric, oh I forgot free housing to boot!" The same one's keep getting all the benefits. It is not the people's fault it is our government, always with the hand outs, and where is that cap to stop benefits after a set amount of time, my goodness who couldn't get a job within a YEAR, oh wait over a year there is the extension! You are clueless!

You are the one who is clueless. Look at the economy. Who could find a job and make enough money to support their family? You know so much list all the jobs out there that will keep people off of food stamps and public housing.

The thing is... people tend to use foodstamps as a crutch and NOT a stepping stone to help get them to a better place.
I understand having to need foodstamps - I was one such person. However, I was hell bent on not NEEDING them anymore. I got out and picked up cans, I mowed peoples yards, I cleaned houses. Half the time I had to go door to door to do it. I would give people a flyer with references they could call (and no it wasn't family & friends) and verify my work ethic.

I put in applications anywhere and everywhere. There wasn't anything I wasn't willing to do or learn to do.
Thankfully my persistantance paid off. I landed a great job in an office setting with awesome hours.

But more importantly I showed my kids what it was to want stuff and that with a little hard work they could have it. That even though you were given a handout once...THERE IS NO VALID REASON to keep getting said handout if you don't need it.

please people quit disagreeing on this thread, there is be no reason for this. All this lady asked was some places to help her and her family, that they are having real hard times. everyone should be trying to help her instead of throwing off on her and the food stamp program,you all better be careful with the way things is, it very well could be some of you needing that help.

Jesus said to feed the hungry, take care of the widow and the alien in your country. Jesus fed the hungry. Luckily for all the world jerks don't get to be the judge of anyone so take your heathen opinions and you and your devil kind can keep going down the path to Hell. Just imagine if people actually did what Jesus said instead of sitting back throwing out insults. Someone is in need and all you can do is make fun of them. I bet you think all the Mexicans should go back to Mexico and live in boxes and live without running water or toliets.
