obliged to receive the food because they do not want to appear
ungrateful for the help they received.
They are thankful to receive regular delivery of free groceries from the
social service organisations and would willingly accept anything even

Others felt that living alone, it would be a chore to go to out to
purchase ingredients like vegetables and fish just to cook for one
