You are new in a different  life that has a whole other language and flow.

  1. Learn to LISTEN, we are creatures that want to be excepted in any situation. Learn to observe, listen and be polite. Remember these people are not your friends that know anything abut you as a person. Learn NOT to deluge all your personal information.
  2. Know who is around you at all times.
  3. Do Not participate in any schemes that pertain to your EBT card.
  4. Learn your surrounding areas – churches, community centers, pantries, food banks, public library – they all have information that you can find productive and educational. Don’t be afraid to ask questions.
