The younger the children, the more likely I will. That said; I'd also be willing to resort to feeding my kids dandelion leaves, wild chives, and other often-overlooked goodies that are essentially everywhere.

I think most of us would steal if we had no other option. Maybe not for ourselves but definitely to feed our loved ones. Personally I'd rather ask for help than steal though and would only steal as a last option. There are a lot of food pantries, churches, shelters, soup kitchens and nice people out there who would be more than willing to help someone get some food.

I used to work at a grocery store and this guy would come in every so often. He was a single father with two little kids and one day the manager caught him stealing some baby formula and cereal, basically food for his kids. The manager ended up paying for the stuff and told him next time he'd have to call the cops but he also told the man that if he EVER needed help getting his kids some food to let him know and he would try to help him out. The guy was very embarrassed and a proud person and didn't want to have to ask for help. The manager also gave him some information where he could get help locally and he did end up calling and getting with this church who helped find him a new job. Last I saw he was doing pretty good and working. So I learned that most people would be willing to help if you would only ask. Most people would prefer doing that than having to call the cops on you and having you arrested.

No, I wouldn't steal. As you recognized, stealing could land me in jail and if I were a major contributor towards keeping my family from starving (and failing at it), then when I go to jail my family likely dies of starvation anyway - and their chances of survival are much slimmer. Also, I'd be compromising my principals and setting a bad example for my family.

So, when all is said and done, the choice comes down to:
1. Potentially starve out and die.
2. Steal to prolong death by starvation, which compromises my principals and likely just prolongs my families starvation. My family then has to go through the agony of starvation again, this time leading to death and without my support.

Phrased that way, I think far fewer people would want to steal.

If I tried asking for money from friends/family/crowdfunding/foodstamps and they all said no... and if what you say is true and not having money/food to survive w/ family is out of my control... and if everything really was unfair like that

then yeah I would, BUT ONLY FROM IMPERSONAL SOURCES WHO WON'T EVEN MIND. Like let's say Walmart wouldn't care or even notice if $40 worth of food goes missing one week. Or steal from billion dollar businesses who also won't give af.

But I don't think I'd ever steal from like a person. That's just pretty much taking your situation and forcing it on them so that they get the hardship... that's not right. Only take from businesses who won't give af or hurt from it.

Ok, am speaking as the real me (Reality, not role playing as Marcus at the moment :p).

I would probably go to the owner of the foods and ask him/her if there something I can do to help her/him in order to get some foods to feed my family.

The problem is I have high morally (I'm Honorable) and I can't bring myself to steal otherwise I'll get sick! >.<

If the owners refuse, I'll get on my knee and beg >.<. I probably willing to be his/her bodyguard to fight in order to get foods for my family.. Who knows.. As long its doesn't hurt woman and children.

But what if man attempted to steal food and I stop him.. I probably give him my food.. oh man its suck having high morally don't it? >.<
