If your so depressed no one has to know your parents are getting food stamps unless you tell them. Your not the only one who's family is struggling in this day and age. Be thankful your parents are getting food stamps so you can eat. If your really that upset about it get a job to help out with the food cost.

It is nothing to be ashamed of. Many people get food stamps, myself included. No reason to be upset or depressed. Just be thankful you have food on your table.
