The big problem with the food banks are they need to have a system to check people out that really in need of the food, I'm sure the people at the homeless shelters do need it but these people around town going every week to the hand outs when most are knocking down 3 to 6 thousand a month or has a food stamp card with 600 or 800 dollars a month or more on it. I'm one of the people that at one time donated money and time to fill the food banks here in town and then to see what type of people are getting the hand outs!

We see articles and hear MSM broadcasters telling us over and over these days that the economy has turned around, unemployment is dropping weekly and that the US is on the rebound, then we see a story like this and we should be able to see what the real state of not only our area but the country is in. People open your eyes, things still haven't improved and we need a change now.
