Anyone here in Philadelphia, PA?
I just moved here and I am in dire financial straits for the next month or so. I need assistance with food in particular, immediately. Staples like legumes, rice and oil and some canned things are good, I don't need anything fancy. Also need furniture, that's not as important for survival obviously but if I can't find what I need for free, some cheap places to check out would be nice. I am aware of craigslist and phillyfreecycle for furniture. I was hoping for recommendations to specific thrift stores if anyone had any. My main concern is food right now. I got some contacts for pantries, but I was told they want proof of residence. Because I am new here, I do not have a Pennsylvania ID (I don't have the required documents yet to apply for an ID, i.e. utility bills) and have no way to prove residency which might be a problem.
