die Brot

This may seem weird to you but I know how to say, “I need something to eat but have no money. I want to work for something to eat,” and that makes me feel safer. I don’t know why but knowing how to say, “Ich brauche etwas essen aber ich habe kein Geld. Ich möschte artbeiten für das Essen für mir und meine Tochter” gives me a sense of security. If the world fell apart and our money was worthless and our credit and debit cards wouldn’t work, I can still say, Can we wash dishes for a bite to eat? It’s a good thing to know.

Translation of above phrase: I need something to eat but I have no money. I want to work for the food, for me and my daughter.
