We were all getting in line early. Sometimes it's best to get there 3 or 4 hours early. If you are at the end of the line, that means that you probably won't get as much. Some places don't have enough. More and more people are coming out, and the lines are getting longer.
I was taking a friend to do our bottles and cans, so we have enough to make up the difference since the Food Stamp cuts. Eleven dollars has been taken out by the cuts, and sometimes bottles and cans don't make up that difference, sometimes not even half.
This is a photo of my kitchen three days before my benefits hit. This is what my son had for dinner. I had a cup of coffee. I had peanut butter and jelly too, but I needed to make sure he had enough first.
