Some people may argue that access to food stamps is essential for needy families. However, the truth is that there is help everywhere such as charities I agree that people need food stamps to eat but there are other ways to put food on the table. About 20% of all the recipients do not have a job which means that they entirely rely on food stamps. They are dependent on food stamps and cannot put food on the table by themselves. But this will entirely change if these people get a job because they can’t rely on food stamps forever.

These situations are making it hard for Americans to make it in everyday life. They have to even sometimes beg for food for their families. So many people living in the United States have full-time jobs but the pay is minimum wage. With the economy in the shape it is, it makes those full-time jobs seem like only part-time jobs.
Hold food drives, since so many of these people are starving and can't afford food. With food drives, a few dollars from each person, can make the world of a difference in providing food for these people to have at least two meals a day. Thirdly we need to encourage those that are better off to reuse their products by donating them to charity. In millions of people's homes there are thousands of items that aren't being put to use that someone else would be able to make great use
They have to work to send money to their families in Mexico. So their families in Mexico could buy food, clothes, and be able to build a shelter. Even though we put our hard work in the field picking up strawberries it is not enough because, we get paid the minimum wage. The minimum wage is eight dollars and forty-five cents not even close to put food on the table for one day. According to my father an immigrant himself, said that approximately about two hundred people cross over each night.
Those things are the one that makes us overeat. Bigger portion is not necessary good. It might be a good deal but not good for our eating behavior. A survey found that with a bigger portion people tend to eat more and not realize it. When we serve our food on a plate, we usually finish what we get; if we use a big plate, then we could fill up the plate and eat a lot more but if we use a small plate, then the space is limited and will not fill it up as much.
The revelation of her poverty to the people she meets, who doesn’t exactly give her the things she needs, makes her feel mortified. There are countless needs for an individual in poverty, which they do not receive. When Parker sought for help she got it but it was barely enough for the necessities she and her children need. She uses logos to explain the cause and effect of the seventy-eight dollars she gets every month. She pays twenty dollars rent and the “rest goes for food.” This is the reason why she and her children can’t get the other necessities they need, including the children’s education.
Managers have been known to steal also, I had a General Manager steal food products just to set up another manager at one point. When I was a manager I witnessed my supervisor, who could not find any other way of terminating another assistant manager load product from the stores freezer into her car and take it to the employee’s house, drop it off in her driveway and call the police to report the theft. I have also seen employees take food from the restaurant simply to provide for their children. Generally employees in the food service industry, are among the lowest income households in America. These people do not typically have any education beyond highschool, or they are students who are simply trying to survive until they have their degree.
It is a constant struggle, Tara as a hospital food service worker, making a gross income of just over $20k per year. At 7% over the poverty level, Tara and her children are not eligible for government assistance. The old catchphrase “the rich get richer and the poor get poorer” has never been so obvious in today’s society. Poverty continues to grow in the working class; we need to work together to provide assistance to those in need. What is the working poor?
Failures to function adequately were someone can not handle every day life. Such as getting to school late all the time when that person was never late in 5 years, this definition is easier to spot as it stands out as it’s just one individual that changes in a big way. The main reasons for this to happen are suffering from an illness/disorder such as depression or just given up on life e.g. loss of control of their self. Cultural relativism also is a criticism as different cultures have different ways of life so if some one from a less economically developed country went to America and saw people just sitting down eating lots of food they would think they were failing to functions as they do not work hard to earn money and do not saver their food.
When I say health, It means the overweight. For example people in United States eat fast food everyday and kids are more motivating to eat this kind of food. Being overweight is a big problem nowadays. It isn't healthy because people in many cases suffer with heart problems and respiratory problems. In the shools people eat fast food and you see many kids who are overweight.
