How can I get help for food when SNAP won't help?
I live in Buffalo, NY,
I make $36,000 a year and have to pay child support, 73% of daycare/medical expenses, car insurance, car loan, phone bill, gasoline and have no money left over to buy groceries, and have to live with family because I have no money to be able to afford rent, and I don't do drugs and work a full time job for 40 hours a week and get paid bi-weekly and drive a lot to drive accross town to pick up my son for visits
I don't have custody for my son only because I don't have enough space for him to live with me.

You don't "have" to pay for most of that. It is your "CHOICE". Car insurance, car loan, gas - did it occur to you that if you gave up the car, you would have all that extra money for food and other things. When you have a pitiful salary, you have to make wise choices. A car is not one of them. Take the bus. You aren't going to qualify for help. You have a full time job and are physically capable of working. You have to live within your means. That is what is expected of you.

I have a license, but I don't have a car. I don't have a child either.
Currently I am living with a relative. I have enough money, for rent. I have enough money, for food, and I have enough money, for my phone bill.
I prefer to save money, so I can buy a home.
Lastly you can only blame yourself, for the circumstances that you are in.

Why don't you get custody of your son? A boy needs his father more than he needs his mother.
You are the male role model.
Move to Tulsa, OK and get a job there. The City of Tulsa is giving $20,000.00 to new residents.

When I was younger I had to get a 2nd job in order to get by. I also knew many others in the same situation who did the same. One has to get tough in order to survive. Handouts make you softer. Good luck!
