TankerT, thank you. Nicely said! Would that the world problems be so simple. Cheap food is often high calorie. We live in very different times. Fewer jobs, even fewer stable jobs. High costs of rent, groceries, etc. Throw in medicines and doctor bills....

i volunteered at a food bank, I did the accounting bit. What came in from where and then where it was sent. Most went to church pantries.

I think it’s best not to judge. Be grateful those are circumstances we don’t know. The Reagan Welfare Queen was based on one woman in Chicago but has stuck in the memories. The biggest fraud is at the top. Most folks are just trying to survive.
