The Walls had to deal with severe poverty and constantly had to worry about where their next meal was coming from. On one occasion, they ran out of money and had no food to eat for lunch, and Jeannette said “When Dad dropped Brian and me off at school, he noticed that we weren't carrying lunch bags. ‘Where are your lunches?’ Dad asked us. We looked at each other and shrugged.
Even though Dad had been fired from the barite mine, we were able to continue living in the depot by paying rent to the mining company, since not a lot of other families were vying for the place.We now had food in the fridge, at least until it got toward to end of the month, when we usually ran out of money because neither Mom nor Dad ever mastered the art of budgeting” (Walls 76).
“Well,” Mrs. Johnson interrupted, “how about we settled down and talk about our plans for the morning?” Everyone agreed and sat in a circle discussing their ideas. Next, they decided they should head to bed due to the early times they would have to wake in the morning. As they woke up, they put on their layers of clothes, grabbed their bags, and headed for the Johnsons’ business. They would be staying in an attic, which luckily had a bathroom, but would have to sleep all in one room. They set up their belongings and set rules which they would have to follow to stay safe.
Maycomb County has been living a few dynamic days, as it not only snowed yesterday, but also today at approximately 2 in the morning a tremendous fire burnt the house of Maudie Atkinson to the ground. Even though the cause of the fire has not been confirmed yet, it is highly believed that it was due to the flue in her kitchen. Since it had not snowed since 1885, the people in town were not prepared. The fire truck was killed by the extreme weather and it took plenty of time for it to arrive to the scene, but fortunately it arrived in time to prevent the fire from spreading to other houses in the neighborhood. The commotion among everyone was clearly perceived.
were living in flooded tents where the people were without food or fire. The town and the county had stopped giving help because the situation had become too unbearable (DeMott
So began a thrice-daily ritual on the raft, with pumpkin pie and spaghetti being the favorite subjects. The men came to know louise’s recipes so well that if louie skipped a step or forgot an ingredient, Phil, and sometimes Mac, would quickly correct him and make him start over.” Instead of just saying “they were starving” Hillenbrand instead talks about how they fantasized about Louie’s Mother's cooking. She uses detail of the cooking to develop how hungry they are and to show the lack of food they have. I know when I'm hungry I often think about my mother's mash potatoes and ham, and how she puts everything together and cooks.
In Kansas City, a teenager, Sarah, had a family with many problems. She lived in a house “with no heat. No water. No lights. She read by flashlight” (Adler 1), until her grandfather took Sarah and her brother in.
Sarah slugged through the early morning work and realized-too soon- that she needed to make a trip to the house. She made her way, clasping her arms around her for warmth in the cold November morning. Painted Girl’s borrowed sweater did not help dissipate the cold air, and neither did the lingering whiskey in her system. A light shone in the window illuminating Grandfather and Dingle, who sat at the table together eating pie. She watched as Dingle grabbed a juicy strawberry from Grandfather’s pie and nibbled at it greedily. Grandfather must have finished his hunt early, Sarah realized. She had hoped to avoid Grandfather today but nature called. There was no choice, either the woods or the house. Sarah did an about turn and went for the
It was a quite a normal fall day out here in Louisiana. The year was 1930, my daughter and I had been out working in the barnyard. “Lauren, work faster the guest will be here soon for Thanksgiving dinner.” I exclaimed to Lauren as she was cleaning the pigsty. Soon we were to have our family and friends come to visit us for Thanksgiving. I don’t necessarily like having guest, since they’re always a lot of cleaning do. Actually, cleaning wasn’t the problem since we lived in a very small house out in the country. The problem was food was very scarce for us, so we worked extremely hard. You see, out here in Louisiana it wasn’t easy to be wealthy so half of the town was what you would call ‘poor’.We can’t provide them with a lot of food,
Splitting the rations up evenly between both of the families was very hard. Both of the families never had enough to eat. All they had to eat was bread, beans, and rotten potatoes. After a while the food was tasting ancient. They all desired to their previous years with the homemade cooking. If they were to survive they had to be on rations and hiding.

They had to make camp that night without the benefit of a creek or river nearby. Charity was glad they had filled the water barrels before leaving Marilee's; at least she had water for the stock and for them to drink. By the time she stopped to set up camp, the children were bone-tired and so was she; she was glad she didn't have to cook. Marilee had fried several chickens and packed them some beans and biscuits to go with it. They filled their bellies and were asleep, before it was good and dark out.
CHAPTER 4 Memorial Day weekend was over, and Mr. Cassidy knew there would be many cans and bottles strewn along the riverbank. After breakfast, using his truck he went to collect them. “I’ll pick up a load today and finish tomorrow,” driving down to the riverbank,” he said. When he arrived at the riverbank, he noticed he was the only one in the parking lot. Using large trash bags, he filled it with cans and soon filled the back of the truck. Looking around before he went to the center to decide if he needed to bring the truck the next. While going down the pathway, he noticed a man’s shoe under the brush. Upon checking, he discovered a man’s body, fully clothed. Thinking someone may have hurt him, or he was sick, Ernest crawled under the brush.
The family had just finished packing up their things to depart from their home with some friends onto an island off the coast of the Americas. After arriving to their destination they found some shelter and made camp for the night.
