I tried to suggest that at our food bank and they refused. Would you believe it?
He spouted something about if I didn't bring in enough to give some to each person it would not be fair. Then he mentioned about the spoilage etc. etc. Clearly he didn't want to go to the trouble.
So now our group has a community garden and we bring actually hundreds of pounds or produce to local churches of all denominations and a Synagogue. So we are doing our part, thanks to the many hours of volunteering from our group.
That is wonderful rosewood, bless all of you for your efforts. My husband works at two different pantries, and it would be hard at the one where the people all come at the same time on Saturday, they compare everything they get, and get upset if someone got 2 cans when they only received one. They are refugees, and haven't adjusted to a country with plenty. At the other, where we donate what we grow, people come in all through the week, so it is luck of the draw. If there are fresh veggies, they may take them. Our church pantry is the same way, and has a large refrigerator, so they are able to put perishables in it. I think we are the only local pantry that keeps fresh milk stocked.
