    Race: Russian___ White___ Other___
    I know by "White" here you mean WASP, but you may want to phrase the question like this:

    Ethnicity: Russian___ American___ Other___

    Also, what does OBE mean here? You wouldn't be referring to out-of-body food experiences, would you?

    1) Is the amount of food you received enough for 3 meals for 3 days?
    Do you mean three meals extended over three days or three meals per day for three days?

    Here's my 2 cents.

    Никогда - never
    Редко - rarely
    Часто - often
    Всегда - always

    I think this should be fairly straightforward. Maybe you should try this yourself?

    BTW, conveinent is spelled incorrectly.
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    Опрос относительно питания: январь-июнь 2005 (I don't know what OBE means so it probably requires changing)
    Индекс (though probably it’s better to leave it in English)
    Возраст ____ лет
    Пол: М Ж
    Перечислите возрасты детей в вашей семье, проживающих с Вами.____
    Число людей в вашей семье, проживающих с Вами.____ (Do you want the number of people or listing them by names? My translation is for the former. )
    Национальная принадлежность: русский __ американец__ другое __ (translated with regard to Pravit’s remark though it would probably make sense not to include “American” option in the Russian variant)
    1) Хватает ли Вам получаемых продуктов на три дня при ежедневном трехразовом питании? (I believe the answer to Pravit’s question is 3 meals per day)
    2) Есть ли у Вас возможность (транспортные cредства и т.д.) при необходимости возвращать продукты?
    3) Удобны ли вам наши часы работы?
    4)Легко ли Вам соответствовать требованиям для получения питания (по уровню дохода)

    WHOAH. Good eye privat! How ethnocentric of me.. I do not know what OBE means here. It is probably a filing code for that church/service.

    Thank You for those pointers,

    The second. A person or family can go twice per week everyweek for a lot of "groceries", but it really only turns out to be say a chicken and a whole lot of staple foods, plus there is a huge kitchen there that serves breakfast and lunch to the whole city (well you know...it's big and geared to take care of everyone, college students, homeless, elder, immigrants, me). Plus all you can carry bread every day. Only, things are much geared for the Spanish and Americans. Because that is what they are used to. I thought this was an important document to even things there as "certain" homeless Americans for instance don't seem to make the connection between Russians and bread, for example. It's gotten pretty predjudice a couple of times and I'm going to see things even out or kick some ass trying--because it bugs me that's why. The Russian wave is fairly new on the scene but nontheless bold and beautiful. If they were better represented, and it's going in that direction, then stupid people who complain about Russians taking more loafs than the average person (my self not included-I load em up) would be put in their place or come to an understanding to let things lie. Rambling sorry.

    Thankyou for your 2 cents. I would like to try this for myself, this came up out of the blue and I did not yet possess the skills. I am dyslexic.
