$$$ help from power outage, food spoilage, boosts appreciated (long) 

So my birthday was last week (the 13th) and i was greeted that morning with my lights being out, they stayed out up until the 18th (about a week)

In that time, all of my food went completely bad and right now I'm in the process of throwing that out. I don't have an estimate of how much i lost $$ wise, but i do know that I did lose maybe 2-4 weeks of food that week.

While i wasn't really prepared for a power outage, I was lucky enough that i had enough money from my birthday to get me through that week to help get supplies, take out and stuff for my folks, but now I just need to recover my food again.

I already have food rn for a couple of days but a little bit of funds would def help recover everything I lost from the fridge and deep freezer

@melaniemoo if you've got renters/homeowners insurance, check your policy for food replacement coverage. it's apparently quite common for both to include such.

@LexYeen We def thought about that, my mom told me that what she has won't cover major outages (like we had)

and that she would have to pay a deductible, so she's not hassling with that =n= (i barely understood any of that but yeah)

@melaniemoo urghgh.

if you're in one of the counties listed here you can apply for government assistance: gov.texas.gov/news/post/white-

also, if applicable, SNAP recipients can get food replacement funds - all info I have says "call 211 for more info"

@LexYeen I live in Virginia so that won't be applicable for me, but thank you anyways xD
