    Default left-over food is going, go poor, go like this

    I think there is left-over food is going.

    Why do many people go poor instead of being advanced country?

    Keep your hands up, and go like this till you reach home.
    Turn on the switch, press the button and now we ready to go.

    Are these sentences correct?

    Please help me.
    [I have no more context. It's all my own sentences, just check if it is correct as to grammar and semantics]

    Hi,
    going
    adjective [after noun]
    available or existing:

    I don't suppose there's any left-over pie going, is there?

    I wrote the first sentence after I saw this sentence in the dictionary.
    I wrote the (2a) sentence after I saw this meaning of "go" in the dictionary.

    go (BE)
    verb [L only + adjective] going, went, gone
    to be or stay in a particular, especially unpleasant, condition:

    In spite of the relief effort, thousands of people continue to go hungry.
