I'm not surprized...they continue to kick us and stomp on us, until we can no longer get up. We may not be restricted to having only one child like China is doing to their overpopulated country, but what the USA is doing is killing us by starving us, living in frigid conditions while being homeless or not being able to afford our heat for the winter. Since our elderly are living longer than they have been centuries ago, our country can no longer afford to take care of all of us...so the sooner we are gone out of their lives, the better. Do I sound depressed...yeah, I guess I am...

actually i thought large grocery chains were dependent on them as well

they would seem to be a natural ally and with money to lobby as well..

Try clipping coupons. Use local food banks. Go to any local rescue mission and apply for food.  Buy in bulk from discount warehouses like Costco and Sam's Club.

    For perishables, tour the local grocers and look for "manager's special" marked goods, which means that they will sell the item for a discount rather than suffer a loss.
.
Grocers are no dependent on food stamps, they are dependent on the government to reimburse them for the benefits.

These are all good suggestions, but what about when you have NO income coming in at all, you can;t go to Costco with no money. Food stamps are there for people who have no income. I know people that because of prolonged unemployment had to live in their car and eat with foodstamps. If not for foodstamps their would not have eaten. I don't think you realize how dire the unemployment situation is for a lot people. I have seen it with my own eyes! their is no easy fix this problem. When companies don't hire or can't, somebody has to step in to support these people, in this case the government has to.
