If you are reading this and are hungry (or otherwise in crisis), every part of American has Call For Help 211. It's a service that hooks callers up with local resources, like food and shelter, as well as a gateway for people who need to reach out for adult protective services, etc.
You dial it just like "911" for emergencies.

Well that sure beats my answer.
Knight, man. You're spiralling the wrong way. What's going on?
What's the way out of this? What's step 1 maybe, of the way out if this?
I've dealt with people at rock bottom. Twice. I've been at my own rock bottom ( it may not compare, but it was mine and I processed it and got through it.
What's the way out of this?
As for myself, yeah. I lasted hungry for two weeks and then I called mom. She sent a check and I wasn't hungry anymore.
There was a "leave bread take bread" rack in my university. I was "white person in G8 country" hungry, which still feels hungry. I stood there for 2 hours. I'd get close, then back off. Get close, back off. Finally I figured that if I took some there might be some person who really, really had no other option and there'd be none left. So I said fuck it and called my parents. I actually ate ketchup packets that week.
So yes I've been hungry, but no... no I've never been hungry.
Anyway, of 600 units, I bet I have 100 that are occupied by a 90+ year old. It's a perennial question, who's checking on these people? The condo ass'n has a maintenance department that visits as a matter of routine every few months, and the electric meters are inside.
But that's not enough, yanno?
Without that family, who knows? I was without doubt malnourished.

But no, the COLA adjustment is automatic and SS got an adjustment for the first 4 years of Obama and before that.
But @knight give us some of the particulars like your state, and perhaps we can put our heads and resources together and help you with this predicament.
Ever been to Washington State?
