John Bixler eats a meal he made with discarded food items he salvaged from a dumpster after the BGSU students moved out of their apartments at the end of the semester. He says, “I want to get stuff that’s not open, if it’s open, forget it, that can stay.” John lives in a small studio apartment in Bowling Green. John has worked at the Wood Lane workshop since 1982. Wood Lane is a community non-profit that supports and assists Wood County residents with developmental disabilities in increasing their skills, capabilities, and independence. John currently receives $15 in food stamps each month, which is down from $200 a month previously. He says, “Most of the time I run out of food and that is why I go to these food pantries.” Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and macaroni and cheese are main staples of his diet because of their affordability. John enjoys going to church with his mom in North Baltimore and watching cooking shows such as Rachael Ray and Paula Deen whenever he has the opportunity. 5/12/2014
