Devil does need to cool it a bit, but Smurfette, you need to change your bulb---yours is pretty dim. You go around posting all over the place and you really don't know as much as you think you do. Lot of drama in your life. Why, so much, you might even be a queen! LOL!

kudos to you. seriously. my only hint would be, cheap green beans (39 cents a can) can really be good if you doctor them up. seasoning is the key. potatoes are always good and somewhat cheap. flour is cheap and biscuits are soooo good and filling. it takes time and effort. pizza if you make your own and personally i like my own better. i agree about the prices. thrift is my new middle name. cheap canned peaches with a little flour----GREAT peach cobbler. hang in there. you might be remembered for your cooking. i know the older people fed big households and had little or no money, but they all ate good. not many good cooks around anymore.

Its not the church directly behind Target, but the next one down. You'll have to call for times. Also if you are ever in Bardstown, stop into the Dollar General Market. The food is a lot cheaper than most grocery stores & their produce is really fresh & cheap. Ignore all the smart alecks on here.

I went to the Price Less (Old Houchens) and thought they had really cheap prices. I'm like you, trying to cut corners. I think most of us are.
WJCR Food Boxes

You could try the Amish D&D store on dixie going towards Glendale. They have several great deals, we go there often. Also there is a new store that just opened where Houchens used to be....(In Etown) and they are supposed to sell things at cost with a 105 add on at the register....:) Might be something to check out....if you are looking for a food bank there is a Christian Radio Station that is in Sonora that gives great boxes on Wednesday (weve volunteered there Several times) WJCR 90.1.....Hope this at least gives you some options. Good Luck to you.
Correction on the location of this Radio Station: They are fantastic and they do give great food boxes on Wednesdays, however their location is in Millerstown (9 miles from Upton) They do have an Upton address because that is where their P.O. Box is located.
You can listen to the station on 90.1 FM or another option is on the computer where they are streaming 24/7 ( www.wjcr.org ) you can click on a link that will show a "video" of their food distributions and also many other features. You can get food from them once a month! You can also check in the phone book and phone the churches that are most local to where you live, just ask them if they have a food pantry and what their process is for qualification. I have never heard of a church asking for money for this. Also as mentioned, Bent & Dent as well as D&D are great stores to get good food at discount. If you dont mind dents and slightly outdated foods they have great deals. This is how my family does as we do not qualify for government help either (which is a blessing in itself!) Good luck and if you need help locating WJCR, if you choose to go there some day, let me know, I can try to help.

Church

Just call a local church and they will give you a list of all the local churches they participate in food banks. There are several here in Etown but I can't remember all the names and locations. I had never heard of food banks before until I got married and my husbands family is really big into church. The church would just see us a young couple with kids and say here we thought we'd help out and give you all a box of food. Alot of times they have so much extra because not enough people are reaching out to receive. They also have toiletries and occasionally things like diapers and such. It's a blessing to receive and help and donate. Please seek the churches out because they often have an abundance that they want somebody to have rather than sitting on the shelf and going bad.
