I was thinking about poor houses and found this in a search. It is interesting if you scroll down and read how the County started the poorhouse, what they got paid and what they ate and other stuff. very interesting

I don’t mean to hijack the thread. I was thinking America might have to bring back orphanages and poorhouses if things keep going the way they are.
Especially if people become so miserable they would rather go to jail then live free

That is MUCH better than how my late father's family lived on their own farm in Missouri during the same period. When we'd watch The Waltons in the 1970's, my dad would tell us that that was how a "rich" family lived during the Depression. When he was able to attend school, his lunch would be a piece of cornbread with some lard on it.
