Hiding food

Hiding food
Certain food I have to leave in the room because if I don’t [people in the house will] eat it… they’ll go into stuff and they’ll eat stuff. Like my mom’s boyfriend’s friend, he lives here. And he also gets food stamps but I get more than him so when his food is gone he eats my food. And when somebody comes and asks you, “could I have some food?” and you have it, you wanna give it to them. But then you wanna say no, because what if my kids don’t have food to eat the next day? I hate [hiding my food], I really do. But I have to do it because I want to make sure they have something to eat.
