Good luck in your quest.
As I watch the news each day.it seems to me that our government is far more interestd in sending billions of our borrowed money to countries to buy guns and kill our people. These middle east countries hate the United States, but we pay more attention to them than to our own people.
I think "Domistic aid" is far more important than "Foreign aid"
I had a call a while back from a lady that wanted me to send $19.95 a month to the starving children in Africa, I said "no" but I will send them a gross of condoms with instructions so they will stop having kids that wind up starving to death, she hung up on me.

To Shane Williams, you need to post this in the newspaper. I really don't think many have the money for internet, if they don't have money for food. The ones who are proud would never beg or go to food pantry for food. I have heard many stories about parents going without food so that their children can eat. You are right it is a big problem where we live. In our area we are a proud people, brought up not to ask for handouts. You may never hear about the ones who really need help, because they are too proud to ask. I hope that you will be able to get a good report together and get someone to listen to you. God Bless you.

I know this isn't the topic, but it reminds me of how all these people, mainly celebrities, are going and adopting babies/kids outside of the usa. This burns me up! Why not adopt these poor children from your OWN damn country FIRST. Look at all the kids in the usa that need homes. These celebrities aren't doing it from their hearts. They're doing it because it is great press material!

starvation is a problem everywhere & really?? you're going to say we just need to help "our people." You could look at a child from another country who is starving & tell them no im not going to help you because you werent fortunate to be born in the usa where we're lucky enough to have things like food stamps, food banks, churches, & GOOD PEOPLE! wow people really do amaze me sometimes, weren't we taught that we're ALL gods children?

Just an update here: I understand and rspect all opinions, however this is for the U.S. ONLY...I understand that there is hunger going on all over the world however the U.S. seems to be missed in all of this, there are so many programs out there that send food to all these country's but where do we stand? I guarentee you if you go door to door in the U.S. an ask how many ppl have benifited from these programs such as (Feed the Children) folks are going to tell you no because there focus is on other country's..."Trust me I worked very close with that program for quit sometime in thier corparate office", my goal here is to bring some help here at home! I agree that we have food stamps and food banks, but what ppl dont seem to realize is that not everyone is qualified for "Food Stamp" and as far as food banks they are designed to give out a limted amount of food on certain days of the month, so my question there is..."What is everyone doing for food the res of the time?" Fold are starving right here at home and ppl are just trying to look over it especially our "Government", it's time that it 'STOPS". Once again I thank you all for your opions and I will keep updating this story as often as I get new information, again stories and testomonies are a must have my contact info is included on here and again thanks for your much neeeded support on this "Ongoing" and "Growing" epidemic!!!
Pls send all stories and testomony's to ([email protected]) goal is to try and get the filming process started around Oct.1

The only reason a child in this country goes to bed hungry is because of their sorry ass parents. My God, Obama has handed out enough EBT cards and WIC coupons to feed the whole damn country. Sorry deadbeat parents is the main problem here. If you can't or don't want to feedem, then you have no right to breedem!

Is this the same shane williams who wrote over 10 bad checks to the great wall chinese restaurant (as well as Jackie Fisher..rest his soul)? I saw them taped all over the wall there. Do you have children? Is that why you wrote bad checks? Is this the same shane williams who had controlled substance (schedule III) and pled guilty to the felony charges? Is this also the same shane williams who has charges of failing to stop at scene of accident, driving under revoked license, reckless driving, and past due on most of your fines for said charges while being on probation??? I mean, it sounds like you plenty to keep you busy and shouldn't have the time or money to waste filming hungry people.
There are hungry people in Smyth county but most of it is because they are picky, not because they don't have anything. Like another person said :food stamps, food pantries, and WIC are all available. If you don't live outside your means (this means you live in a modest house or apartment and don't drive a car with a $250+ payment) then you can afford to put food on your table. GROW A GARDEN! One good crop of potatoes will feed you for a winter. Instead of expected the government to take care of everyone's woes people need to be self sufficient. There was a time when people grew what they could all summer and then canned and froze everything and ate off of it in the winter. If the amish can live without government help why can't everyone else? If two or three neighbors would get together and make a large garden they could all eat off of it through the winter. Kill several deer and part it out and freeze it. There will be a day when all you can depend on is yourself. Also, I hope you don't just show up and start filming poor people in line for free food at food pantries. That won't get you any respect. These people who do go there deserve to remain anonymous and not be filmed. They have rights to privacy.

I am sure if they are hungry and contact a food pantry or church between distributions they would be feed. I think if you go to these pantries and start filming for your story....the police should be called. Until you've had to stand in a food line you have no idea how hurtful this would be to the clients. Donate to the pantries so they can buy more food if you want to help. They will starve while you wait for the government to act upon you report.

Shane, if this resturant has posted your bad checks on the wall.... you need to go in there and take pictures of the bad checks. This is against the fair debt and collections act... its against the law for any business to post someone debt.....

Good for you! Isn't it nice to be the center of attention???? They are so worried about what someone else is doing that they think that their lives are perfect.....

Let me give you my opinion.... go to the schools, see how many free breakfast are being given, see how many free lunches are given... watch them at the grocery stores..... they sell their wic vouchers for whatever they need.... their kids are their meal tickets....not just Marion but anywhere
