Maybe you should keep your legs closed and you wouldn't have to be waiting.

Saw it on the WBTV web page. It showed one young lady in a big office with filing cabinets topped with hundreds of files. She said it takes her 30-40 mins to key in each case and she has 9000 to do. Said it would be caught up in mid summer. WHAT!!! Good Grief!! Wonder if she is the only one keying the cases? Caldwell County is the worst. They said other counties have caught up.

I called last Friday just over a review that was sent in for my elderly aunt. and she said sir. we are just now on januarys reviews it will be early june before we complete even January reviews. this is so sad and I have seen these food banks and im sorry to have too say this but the food there handing out is only fit too feed the barn animals. and it's old food. some folks have bad stomac s!there are children who cant eat certain foods etc. our church gives out food but there again can food does not fill a childs belly these kids and elderly need food and we all need jobs here in Caldwell county! one more gripe have any of you seen your sheriff holding a meal for the poor or elderly or hungry children? all ive seen is a pancake breakfast that seemed to fail him miserably. look's like he would help the county by handing out some food vouchers. instead of putting fancy decals and lights on the county car's! I called channel 9 today but was told wbtv was doing a story on Caldwell dss. I saw what little it showed on tv which gave no hope!

Blame Raleigh for this mess not the local counties.
DSS workers are already handlng way more cases than humanly possible then the state forces a new program on the counties with no extra help.
The reason Caldwell is so behind is that we are so poor that most of the county qualifies for help.
Blame Washington for NAFTA and slave labor policies that favor outsourcing for that one.

I called them a month ago and they said they were working on Feburary cases, so that proves that they are lying. Also for the past 2 Thursdays I have called and they say my card will be loaded in 2 days and never happens.

Instead of whinning about the late food stamps, why not go to the local food bank and get some food. And while you are there, dont whine cause they are not giving away t bones. If you want steak, GO GET A JOB and buy what you want instead of whinning about the system being back logged. WAY TO MANY people on the system is why it is back logged.

I am not whining! I don't eat t-bones or any kind of steak. I'm 70 years old. Want to give me a job? I also am raising my 3 grandchildren. I need the food for them. Also,want to give me a ride to the food bank. I don't drive. And one of my daughter got me food drive food once and it lasted 3 days. All you get is one bag of food a month. Its been 3 months since I last got my grandkids food stamps.

These DSS workers are supposed to be so far behind! HA...yea right! They told me they was working n Februarys reviews 2 weeks ago. I am a mother of 3. We shop smart and buy what we need. My husband and I work and manage our money the best we can. People now days complain way too much yet don't try even as hard as they complain and go out and make a dollar or so! Suck it up people!! I'm actually happy not to have them responsible for feeding my family anymore! To hell with them. Yea, yea free food was nice but there is a time to reap what you sow! Grow a garden with all that free time ya have! You'll be amazed at how much comes outta that!
wheres the temps

The reason other counties are caught up is because they hired temps. Where are our temps? Not to mention it would help some make some income for a short time.

Let their mom and dads buy their food.you are to old to have kids.Better still give them to someone who will provide for them.you should not have taken them if you can't cloth and feed them.

The people who come to our church food bank complain that they are not getting alot of name brand foods. My family does not buy name brands,steaks nor high priced foods and we do just fine without food stamps. It really is bad when you are giving someone FREE food ( fresh potatoes,veggies, milk, bread etc) for FREE and they complain cause they didnt get steaks to go with it..
