Re: “Homeless Helper

The food bank has operating expenses so of course they should charge. They offer lots of good resources that increase food security in the community besides food boxes. The Community Food Resource Center located on the second floor of the building (3003 S country club rd) offers free seeds, compost and gardening instruction to the community. The also have demonstration gardens and free classes so people can create their own food stream rather than depending on donations exclusively. The work they do is outstanding and the gifts they give are abundant. 22 cents a pound is a small price to pay for that. If the giving tree would like to apply to some programs, they could get the food for free- but that would mean oversight- and they would not be able to readily get away with what they do to communities. For instance, overpopulating neighborhoods with homeless people without establishing neighborhood relation plans thereby driving down home prices. Also, they can afford to pay 22 cents a lb for food since they charge their tenants $10 a day for rent. I think their heart is in the right place but they neglect to consider the effect they are having on the home owners that live around them.
