The government is sponsoring Angel Food Ministries, a non-profit, non-denominational organization dedicated to providing grocery relief and financial support to communities throughout the United States. This program is not income based, anyone can sign up and get food. All the food is government surplus, so don't feel like someone else deserves/needs it more than you.

Although the food distribution is through Churches, they don't preach or try to convert you. So sign up even if you're Pagan, Wiccan, Agnostic, Atheist or whatever.

For $25 you get a big box of food which included lots of meat and a few other items. Believe me, this is a good deal, you get way more than $25 worth of food. One box is supposed to feed a family of 4 for a week or and an elderly person for a month with a few extras bought at the store.

Go to the website and check the hosts (click on your state), it'll give you the places where you go to sign up and pick up your food. There's a different menu each month (you have to take what's offered, you can't pick and choose) and you can buy as many boxes as you want plus there are extra deals you can purchase after you buy the main box.

Even if you're not interested, I'm sure you know someone who this will help. They don't advertise, so word of mouth is the only way to get the word out. This is one of the few things that our government has done that I can approve of. Help spread the word.
