    What if you don't have a school lunch voucher, or anything other than a screen shot to say you get lunch assistance?

    @shadylane @bakingmommy That's totally fine. We just want some proof so we don't have people taking advantage of the system. Cards, screenshots etc are all good!

    Let's make this BIG, mommas!! There's a LOT of power in the Scary Mommy Army, so let's share the link on Facebook, tweet it, pin it, and email it out. Let's spread the word!! Not just for fundraising purposes, so that families in need and mommas who need support know where to go. :) I'm so proud to be a part of Scary Mommy!! 

    Spread the word!!

    Also, many food banks and other agencies have special summer programs because they know kids are not getting lunches at school and some families struggle. I know in my area theres a couple places that give out lunches during the summer.

    Many also have weekend food backpack programs to help during the school year on weekends.

    This link has information about summer/weekend programs and a food bank locator to find one in your area tha participates.

    If you are in AZ. There is a program called Market on the Move (MOM).  it is apart of the 3000 club.  for 10 bucks you can get 60+ lbs of produce. Basically it is whatever is in season. If you grab too much just pass it on to those who need it, friends, family, neighbors...

    This has REALLY helped me and my neighbors/family.

    I feel a bit strange asking, but is the help international?

    they'd just have to change it to euoros or whatever....if you know someone who needs to apply @irishlass then have them apply... worst that happens is they hear it's just not possible... or that it'll take a little longer because they're in another country (that doesn't touch the US) but... I don't see why not.

    Mods- if you need help figuring out how to send to say... north pole ;) let me know. I bet i can have an answer tonight for anyone that applies tonight.

    Ladies!

    We have seen a couple of confessions come through that say they haven't yet received their assistance, but don't want to ask about it directly...

    Nikki has informed us that she sent out emails asking for contact addresses to send it to, but hasn't heard back from several people.

    Everyone who applied: If you haven't received yours yet, PLEASE check your inboxes, spam filters, etc, or email Nikki directly. She can't mail it to you, if she doesn't have an address !

    I got confirmation that mine was going to be mailed out and that my address was verified. Last email requested that I notify when I recieved it and that it should be anyday now. That was a month ago. :( I budgeted it in and now we're hurting even more without it.
    You and me, we go way back.

    I haven't received mine either, I did submit my adress over a month ago. I also sent a PM to @Nikki, as well as an email asking when I might expect it, that was a few days ago, but have yet to hear back.

    @PallasAthene It should NOT have taken this long - I assumed you got the help weeks ago.

    @otakuhime ... If I remember correctly its for people who receive some sort of food assistance who are falling short. Must have food stamps or something to show proof of need. See the top of this thread for more info ...

    @Calliopemarie SMN help is limited to those who are a part of the community. See if you can get her over here, though, so we can help next time. :)

    Is this still available? I was really trying to avoid having to do this which is why I waited so long, but unfortunately I have to ask. I just keep running out a week before stamps come in and it's killing me to have to pay for groceries cuz I have to take it from other bills and I'm just getting further and further behind
    I prefer not to think before speaking. I like being just as surprised as everyone else by what comes out of my mouth.

    @OtakuHime in that case, it must have been after the deadline, which we had to enforce because there weren't anymore funds. Since then, we have gotten some more donations. I sent you a PM yesterday -- can you respond?
