I know I complain about my meal budget, which is why I’m doing an April challenge of spending only $50 per week on vittles. But there are a lot of people in this world having a hard time affording food. The New York papers have been writing a lot about that issue.
In a Newsday story, the paper writes about people with middle income jobs who are using food pantries to feed their families. In the New York Times article, the story discusses the increase of people using food stamps. Geez. I’m glad that the people profiled are getting much needed help, but a little sad that there are people here who can’t afford meals.
These articles are more motivation for me to save money, just in case times get tough.Have you always had enough food to eat? How do you deal with saving money on food? Have you ever used food stamps or a pantry?
