Even with snap (I qualify for $11.40 each month). I get meals on wheels (they cut them down to 3days a week; 12 a month). the food box from the church once a month has rice, beans some canned vegetables that are low sodium and taste horrible; all of the perishable food in that box is outdated. Week old eggs, 2 week old yogurt, the one meat item in my box was canned chicken dented so bad I was afraid to eat it. There are days when popcorn is my hot meal. Maybe spending is down because they cut benefits down.
