Help!I have NO food and NO money and NO family?
Topic: Daytona case search
July 17, 2019 / By Avalon Question:
I have no money (seriously none.)I have no job, I'm 18 and I live with my girlfriend and we are broke. We haven't eaten since yesterday at school (around noon) and we are sooo hungry. Does Daytona have anywhere we can go?Like a church that hands out groceries? We get our food stamps on saturday but there is no food at all in the apartment.All we have is water and butter and that doesnt really make any thing. Can someone help us ASAP?
I have been trying to get a job for the last three years. No one will hire me because they need full time and I am still in high school.
My girlfriend and I were kicked out of our home with my grandmother last November. We have been ok living off food stamps up until now. I thought that I had it planned out and I didnt. Its my fault, I accept that. But it is really hard to be in HS, try to find work, have no gas and very limited means. I am NOT looking for a handout. Just some help. If you have nothing nice to say to me please dont say anything.

Well either you have internet service (which cost money) or you are at a public facility using their computer. Whatever the case is, do a Google with the keywords: Food bank + your local city and you will come across the nearest food bank by your house.
In the future, you may want to start planning more carefully on rationing your funds to make it stretch better. Shop at the 99 cent stores and be frugal with what little you have and keep looking for work while in the process. If you're waiting for something to fall into your lap then I hate to tell you that you're in for a sad disappointment there my friend.
Just do the Google search on your local food banks and forget all the wisecracks. Nothing wrong with anything as long as you're trying really hard. Also check on your local missions as they are good about helping out right away too.

Good for you for staying in school and doing your best!
I'll have to second the other respondents regarding the immediate issue of finding food.
As far as the job situation goes, here's an idea:
Employers may be hesitant to give you a job because it costs to train someone in, and if you have no experience or references you're a greater risk. However, you would be surprised in this economy how difficult it is to find good retail workers who show up on time, follow directions, don't constantly call in sick, dress neatly and are polite to customers.
Why not make a list of a few business you'd like to work at, and offer to help out a few hours a week on a volunteer basis? Chances are one of them will go for it. When you find one that does, go out of your way to be punctual, polite and above all, useful. Show up when you say you will, and do whatever tasks you are asked as well as you can and cheerfully. Aim to make yourself indispensable. You might find the position turning into a paying one. Even if you don't, you'll be gaining valuable work experience and references, so that when you graduate and are looking for full time work you will be much more desirable to employers.
Come to think of it, rather than asking for handouts or donations on Craigslist, why not put out an ad offering to work for food and/or references? Even shoveling someone's walk can gain you a good testimonial (and maybe a sandwich or two.) Have the person write down a few words of praise and be sure to note their full name and the city they live in. Then add them to the end of your resume. It may be unorthodox but it will show that you are resourceful and a hard worker, which I guarantee will make you stand out from 99% of job applicants.
Good luck, and hang in there - things will get better!

I agree with just about everyone else. The parents are using the children to get for themselves. Money is a definite No-No, it is an enabler for the parents and the kids will get no benefit from it. I have had my own sister show up in my town with a strange man. She had been hitchiking. I let her stay overnight even that against my better judgment. The man could have been a serial killer. The next day I gave her enough bus fare for the two of them to take two local buses. Told her I had to go to work and I could not leave them in my home. Dropped them off at a bus stop. I still had one child at home and could not allow her to be affected by my sister. You must protect yourself, your family and do what is best for the children when their own parents are not capable. Good luck with tough love.

Foodbanks are your best bet. Most decent sized cities will probably have several. Depending on your location, it may be hard to get to them, but walking is better than being hungry. Keep on looking for a job, and stay in school. Although it may not seem like it, things will get better, they always do.

Try to find a local food bank or soup kitchen. You can also post an ad on your local Craigslist and ask people to donate food.
