Just the other day a client showed me her sales receipt after using coupons in her grocery shopping trips,like we taught her. She was able to purchase groceries and paper items totaling $332.81 and after using coupons she had an out of pocket expense of only $22.21! Isn't that great! We have many individuals and families wo come to receive food fromour food pantry as they are food insecure, which is a technicalnamefor being hungry/without food. Many DO NOT receive ANY governemnt assistance (food stamps/LINK). We decided to offer budget counseling with coupons if there was an interest. This was NOT a requirement to receive food. Our organization is supported by donations. We do not ask for gov't funds, as with those come gov't rules which would limit who we could help. For instance,if someone was three dollars ($3.00) over gov't guidelines, we don't care... we can still assist them. We have no guidelines. If you need help, we turn no one away.
