    Is this fact or fiction? You decide.

    I did not have to read your post to know that is true for some families at least during some point in their life.

    That is a time when they know real fear. A gun staring you in the face is not even close to that kind of fear.

    When you come from a poor neigborhood you know that fear actually not you if your the kid, your mother knows that fear.

    Think about how scarey that is for the parent.

    The only Americans who go hungry in innercity neighborhoods are the ones to stupid or to lazy to walk to Food Pantries.
    Heck in cities like Chicago the pantries are in every neighborhood and even ones in the poorest neighborhoods have more food donations then they know what to do with at times.
    This doesnt mean there are not Americans who go hungry,just more then likely they live in areas you would never expect to see people going hungry.Its the ones in Small cities, and rural locations who do not have the safety net and usually suffer.
    The inner city if anything gets MORE then its fair share of handouts.

    Yes, because we all know that food pantries are open 24 hours, overstaffed, and NEVER run out of food.

    EVen some small cities have food pantries. When I was a teenager, I volunteered some time at the food pantry operated by the church parish that I was a member of at the time. I never remember the parish pantry running out of food, and there were poor people in there every day eating a hot meal.

    At least we can say that these families have a lower standard of life.

    Food banks are known to receive donations of "past date" foods that us regular folk don't have to buy, let alone eat.

    Let them eat cake!
