 in response to NeedsInformation...   Try food stamps. They take your total earned income to determine if you qualify. typcialy students get about $200 per month per person. Contact Ohio dept of jobs and family services to determine if you are eligable.

 in response to ImJustSaying...   WE have 4 foster kids which qualify simply because they are in foster care... so should we not use what the state is giving these kids to help care for them? As my case worker said before I would use the service was this is one way the state takes care of the kids they (the state) has custody of.

Here’s the information for the WIC program in Ohio.  I have qualified for it in the past after one of my (4) layoffs, so I am certain that you should qualify as well.

I just wanted to say that I feel for you and whoever you are, you are in my prayers. I lived a life that sounds a lot like yours. Growing up we had a house and all the bills were paid but we didn't have anything else.

Churches and St. Vincent depaul and salvation army have food banks that give food boxes every so often and for holidays. You could try food stamps.
