Real Stories of Hunger

Waterford, MI

I am a 51 single woman with a disabiltiy that prevents me from earning gainful amount of income.

I went on food stamps 5 yrs ago and its been a big help to get fresh food fruits and veggies at the store. I have to be careful what I eat since recently my health has been declining and i am now working regulary so I have to rely on food pantries and friends to fill the gap at the end of each month.

I have no food or money to stock up my pantry and refrigerator so thats when I face hunger my bridge card has recentley been decreased down to 58.00 a month which is very little. So I have to look for more food pantrys ... it sure is hard to stretch every month each food item and each dollar you have. I hate living this way !!!
