How can so many need food banks?

The poorest countries in the world have NO "food banks." We do. That in itself should tell you that if people are going hungry THEY did something to screw it up.
It USED to be that people followed the Bible: work for food. But, our country has people who WILL NOT work. I knew a woman like that. She refused to work. She got welfare.
Yet she had the money to go to shows and theater.

Someone DID tell on her. I wouldn't even know who to TELL. Anyway, I met her on the street one day and she was INFURIATED! She was told that the welfare had stopped and she HAD to work. There WAS nothing wrong with her except sloth and greed [two of the seven deadly sins].

I thought my best FOGHORN LEGHORN "That warms, I say, warms the cockles of mah heart!"

I worked at a Temporary jobs place when I lived in VA. You can’t imagine how many “workers”, esp. women, would refuse to work more than 20 hrs. a week. They didn’t want their Food stamps, WIC, etc. to stop. I was a trusting soul when I started there. I was a cynical, impatient b!tch when I left.
