Temporarily on a limited income

I am pregnant and have diabetes; I had to take medical leave from my job where I was earning $4,000 a month and am now on SFI (Supports for Independence) and receive $620. I expect to continue my career after my maternity leave is over but for the past four months I have been depending on the Food Bank hampers. The hampers give my family the nutritious food my young child and I need. They also set me up with a food co-op that I never heard of, it was just a block away from my house!
