The Food Bank

Ok the debate is going on in the photo thread, so lets bring it to the genral.

The food bank, have you or anyone else you known used it?
is it valid to use it while trying to settle into a new location regardless of prior living arrangments?

if you need to use a food bank you need to use it. a person should know whether or not he/she needs to use it. i wouldn't presume to shit on anyone who finds themselves in circumstances under which they need to use a food bank. personally i would count it as a last resort, rather than as part of my plans for trying to settle in a new place.

Couldn't agree more. Unless you are physically inhabiting someone else's body, you cannot make a value judgement like "that guy/girl is abusing the food bank".

Unless of course they stop in there to grab some soup on the way to the Swarovski store or something like that.

i would guess that the average person who uses a foodbank uses it as a last resort before being driven to criminal activity or some other form of desperation. in toronto, there is a multi-faceted process in place to prevent abuse of it as a resource. people don't generally do their grocery shopping at the food bank. we might find otherwise in the occasional person lacking scruples, but i doubt it's a real concern for the social safety net.

having said that, i would trust that if someone used a foodbank, not only do they believe themselves in need of it, but its staff does as well. enough not to turn them away at the door.
