Clarke Thomas: Getting food onto plates, 14 July 2004 [cached]
Just ask Jim Jackson, food-stamp information specialist with Hunger Services Network.He will describe the plight of a North Hills stay-at-home wife whose husband recently left her, closed all their accounts and foisted on her the costs of their house, without even a bank account.In desperation, she called the network and was connected with Jackson, who was able to provide her an Electronic Balance Transfer (EBT) card which she could use to buy groceries.
A significant part of stories like this is that a helping hand has been made easier by changes in federal programs, with Pennsylvania taking a lead among the states in fashioning innovative ways to implement the new rules.
According to Jackson, the case of the abandoned wife in a prosperous North Hills township represents one of three categories of middle-class persons now using hunger programs that are funded in part with government money and run by nonprofits, often faith-based. (This category can also include an employed wife who walks away, leaves her husband and family suddenly strapped.)

Jim Jackson of the Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh goes to a Murrysville food bank every few months just to see if anybody in the queue qualifies for food stamps.
When he made his last field trip, he signed up a record number at this Westmoreland County food bank, based in a suburb where the median household income tops $76,000, U.S. Census-based estimates show, more than $30,000 higher than the statewide average.
"We were in Mothers of Sorrows Church, and there were 14 persons there who we signed in for food stamps," said Mr. Jackson.
"I can't tell you how many people I talk to each day who are crying, who never thought they would have to get food stamps," he said.

Jim Jackson, program manager for hunger services at the Urban League of Pittsburgh, stated in a letter to the ACBF that the agency expects to serve 400 families this Thanksgiving. That number represents an increase from last year of an additional 100 families who are in need of food.
Jackson said last year's distribution was a success, in part, because of the help provided by the AAH volunteers. He said approximately 75 volunteers are needed to ensure that all families receive their food in a timely and proper fashion.
