Food Insecurity Continues One Year Into Pandemic | MTP Daily | MSNBC


  1. I ate indoors for the first time in a year, and the Sizzler we went to had 4 other tables there on a Sunday night at 6:30 pm. We were our server’s only table. 2 years ago, it would have been packed. Just a reminder that while some of us having been doing ok, a lot of us have not.

    1. @Joe Blow Seek help before you hurt yourself or others. I think this whole thing has loosened a few of your screws…Bat Flu? You’re really gone buddy lol.

    1. I get my news from Fox and Newsmax, Dr. Seuss and Mr. Potato head are near and dear to me. Biden’s dog is not presidential too, that’s the news that I know. The Kraken told me Hugo Chavez’s ghost stole the election.

    2. @Kevin Offutt He used to annoy me, likely his point. Now, I just find it funny and quite sad. To spend so much time typing out (or copy pasting) little, tired one-liners has to be a pretty sad and pathetic life. Keep going Tweetles, you give me a laugh every time I see one of your posts.

    3. @Kevak Arden that’s a pretty good way to look at it Kevak. It seems as though you have more compassion & humor in your little finger than Mr. Tweetles has in his whole body!

  2. Why aren’t so many of these people utilizing EBT and SNAP benefits. Also there’s the Pandemic EBT as well. If people use those services seems like their kitchen cabinets, refrigerators, and freezers should be running over.

    1. @hotboy757 I do know because I currently receive food stamps it’s very easy to apply doesn’t take that much time to go to a local DSS and apply and take the necessary paperwork needed most states are now even giving all recipients the maximum allotments through September 2021.

    2. @Kevin Offutt I don’t care about how rude the people are at my local DSS because once I leave there I don’t have to deal with those workers anymore , just so long as I get the benefits I need. I do realize at a whole lot of the DSS offices the workers do come across as if the benefits they’re assisting you to receive is going to be coming out of their paychecks though, but there again I don’t give AF about their ignorant attitudes.

    3. @Patricia different state, different rules, think about greg Abbott and Ted I don’t care Cruz. People will always vote for these morons because they hurt black people. Look at Texas and tell me I’m wrong

    4. @hotboy757 Maybe it is harder to get SNAP benefits in Texas I don’t know because I don’t live in Texas. I live in North Carolina and it’s relatively easy to get SNAP of EBT benefits in North Carolina. I have been receiving those benefits for years never had any problems with getting my benefits whatsoever. I only hate going to our DSS office and dealing with some of the employees there and listening to screaming babies with the single moms in the waiting area when I have to do business there in person.

    5. @hotboy757 You’re more than welcome son. Do you mind if I ask if you’re having the same problem where you live?

    1. @Di&Ce No need. We eat very well!
      Come north to see for yourself, just leave your guns behind. You are well protected here and our policemen do not shoot people.
      We are still relatively free from your pandemic!
      There is no other place like Canada!

    1. He always looks so smug. He looks disrespectful. He may not mean it, but his demeanor is extremely rude.

  3. My vehicle is broken down so I can’t go to food banks & the hoops you have to jump through to get food stamps is ridiculous here in Texas! This system isn’t set up for the poor in so many ways!!!

  4. For real, who are these people driving nice cars to get free food. My car is over 16 yrs old, I’ve been unemployed for a year, am a senior and EDD is “pending” my unemployment. It’s like pulling teeth trying to get help in Monterey County, CA. I would LOVE to get free food.
