Be sure to get child support during divorce process. Some programs like 1800 charity cars can provide a car if you need it for work. Of course waiting lists and need to apply and meet conditions. As far as food, find details on food pantries by state, so select your state for churches, food banks, pantries, and other places to call for assistance.

I am trying to see if Iowa has any grants or assistance for me & my family. I am just getting directed from one website to another, and not making any progress in finding the help I need!! I am a stay at home mom, my husband is a high school math teacher, and we have a total of 3 kids. He was married once before, and had 1 children who have lived with us. All 3 of the kids are very young. We have food assistance, but it only gives us $285.00 a month to fall of us. We are looking for any type of aid, including food banks, that we either can pay off in the future, but mostly any grant or "free money" for our living expenses, bills, gas, and anything else that comes up. I would appreciate ANY HELP you can give me. Thanks so much.

Well, no wonder you have been looking for a while. If you are looking for free money, it doesn't exist. By the way, if you someone ever find some by after looking for year, please let us know as we want some too. Your time would be much better spent trying to find a job or gain a new skill. In the mean time, coming back to earth, find a realistic list of Iowa food banks and pantries. These exist, and may be able to help, if you are found to be qualified.

Hello,
I live in Fairfield CA in Solano County. I am currently unemployed (seeking employment) and in need of some help with paying for groceries. I have some help from family for other bills so my main concern is with finding information about food aid such as food stamps. I have been unemployed since August 2012. As I mentioned, I am currently seeking employment in my area however, due to the economy, the job seeking process is taking longer than I originally intended. Please let me know what options I have for my area and/or a phone number that I can call to apply for food aid. I can be reached any time via email. If a phone number is necessary for someone to contact me please email me with a request for my phone number and I will then give that information. Thank you very much for your time!

We have a number of food assistance programs listed for Solano County. Many of the sites will also have staff on location that can refer clients to job training or other programs. So if you use the main site to select your county and region, the phone numbers to pantries, public resources, and much more is listed there for California. http://www.needhelppayingbills.com/html ... banks.html

I need emergency food, rental and utility assistance! I am a victim of domestic violence and the aggressor is currently in jail for these crimes. He was controlling all of the finances and paying the bills. Where is a food bank or charity I can use? I now have to somehow stay afloat for me and my 17-month old daughter. She needs to be fed. What can I do?

We need Food. My sons and I have been evicted. My car runs but I have no gas to get anywhere. My boss let me go a couple of months ago and I have been so depressed because he got rid of me to hire his old office manager back because she wanted her job back and he felt sorry for her because she is a single mom of 3...so am I.
But I have a 24 year old, 18 year old and 6 year old so he figured I wasn't as bad off. I am desperate to find a free food bank. We have no food...Evicted Now and I Need Help Desperately. I’m not worried about myself...but I have 2 sons age 18 and 6 that are in need. Please. I am begging for someone to Help Us Please! God Bless.
