|Writing reads: "Donated to you. EAT ME PLEASE!|
Okay maybe I am being a little dramatic but going from not really having to worry about where my food came from to trying to make a little last a while was a serious struggle. I found out that eventually you get tired of left overs and eating the same food over and over again, some foods absolutely positively do not fill a grown person, how difficult it is to interact and socialize with people when you can't really eat with them, and many other things.
A quick break down of my week is:
Monday - spaghetti for dinner
Tuesday - lunchable & cantaloupe for lunch; spaghetti for dinner
Wednesday - lunchable & cantaloupe for lunch; spaghetti o's for dinner
Thursday - frozen pizza for dinner
Friday - hot dog for lunch
When I first thought of this idea I thought that it would not be that bad to have to lower my food intake and that at the end it would actually teach me how to not have to spend a lot of money on groceries after I graduate. But then I realized how easy I had it. I only had to suffer through it for a week and then I knew it would be over. There was a feeling of hunger always till I eventually got to the point where I had to keep myself busy to keep form thinking about it. But there are people that have to go through this on a weekly basis. It is important to think about these people when we see people asking for donations because this is something we can fix.
