You shouldn’t feel embarrassed. Sometimes you just need help.

I have been that broke, back when I started my own business. Later I volunteered at a food bank. Good people understand, and you are not less a person for this. It will be in your past, not your present.

How disappointing. My religion says we should pray for people who are ignorant. What’s sad is that some cruel persons taught him to say that. So it’s possible he is a victim of some emotionally abusive people. We have to look deep within our selves and be at peace knowing we are living honest lives.[@1063352,Warewolfgal94]

Religion is not a real thing, but it does help people feel virtuous. [@8567,Mindful]

A gazzilion people give to the food banks in hope that it will help people who need help! Don’t be embarrassed. People there are happy to help others who need it

That is nothing to be embarrassed about. The food bank is there to help people left behind by the government.

Nothing to be embarrassed about. A lot of people need help these days.

It happens 🤷‍♂️ you have food.
If going to the/ a food bank means you won’t go without food... you do that! Take care of yourself, please,

A year ago I ran a weekly food pantry out of my trunk at our school. Right now my kids and I are staying at a hotel paid for by a shelter i used to volunteer at. You will have ups and you will have downs, just pay it forward when you are up ❤

Please don't be embarrassed. Sometimes we all need a little help. And it's the brave ones who ask.

I've done that on more than one occasion. I felt embarrassed because I was dressed better than the other recipients, a lot were in rags.

Keep going, we need you to stay strong and healthy - this has been a historically an unprecedented, difficult period in history...

[@1185254,Thebitterone] Yup - all the old crap goes out the window - folks have to be decent and work together on this one...

[@64578,fun4us2b] Cleveland is not people friendly, sometimes the food banks are empty
Thebitterone · 90-99, M
[@1185254,Thebitterone] Just have to depend on human nature I guess.....

That’s nothing to be embarrassed over!!

You'd be surprised how many of us have been in that position.

Fast forward a few years and hopefully things improve for you. Please remember and pay it back. Donations of food and money are always welcome.

We've been there.

Im glad it was there for you

Way more embarrassing stuff has happened to me, don’t worry!
The pandemic has affected the food security of many more Americans. Food banks are ways of neighbors helping other neighbors to get through EXACTLY these times.

When you are stably ok with your food, remember this and please donate to them to help others.
