Exclamation Starving, please help my kids..

I hate to even have to ask but this month was overwhelming! I did not make it to my appt for my foodstamps due to my car having no gas. I have no food left. I cant go to the food closets for atleast another 2 weeks.. We have nothing for the next couple weeks until I either get some from the food closet or get back on foodstamps.. If anyone can help with food via small donations, giftcards (even if its just leftover with a couple dollars) we have walmart, hannaford, market basket, and shaws. Also need about $15 for gas to get to and from welfare so that I can get us back on foodstamps! We didnt really eat dinner my kids shared a mini 1 person frozen pizza and that was the last of it, im sure it didnt fill them up but atleast it was something in their bellys..I dont care if I eat but I have 3 kids and they cant go hungry. If anyone can help I can not even explain how much it would mean to us.. It kills me to have to ask for help with food but I have no idea what else to do.. Thank you to everyone in advance!

Why didn't you ask for help for gas, so you could get your foodstamps???? I will send a couple of dollars.

Thank god they get to eat breakfast and lunch at school for free that helps SO much! The only thing I really need to worry about is dinner until I can get our food stamps back on.

Actually I had no idea they had a soup kitchen, thank you!! The food pantry on central st is where I go to get my food but they never told me they had a soup kitchen also.. There are not alot of churches here nevermind ones that you can get ahold of or even get help from. Thank you for lettin me know about that though, we will deffinatly be using it on the days they are open. Thank you too loveall, I have tried a few churches but there arent many that I have been able to reach.. I think their are about 5 churches in this whole city! I know 1 of them that help with food and thats the 1 on central st.. not sure about the others.. we have never been THIS bad off.. Thank you both!

Call them first just to confirm - I'm seeing a lot of different times on the Internet, so not sure what is accurate.

Please call your social services office and let them know you didnt get your foodstamp as they do issue food vouchers . Also ask about Christmas help . Its worth a try.

Thank you all! I did find another food pantry so I think that should last us for a few days. I did call DHHS they made another appt for me on Nov 12th at 9:15 so im hoping I can get $15-20 to get there. My truck is a gas hog and I THINK $15 will get us there.. i hope lol. So Hopefully I can find some more angels to help. thank u everyone for the resources and faithwriter for the donation, it got us through til we were able to get some food today.
