I have been a part first hand to the food pantry becoming mobile. The one I volunteered to work at, all the workers took food too. The people who came through the line were greedy and nasty little people. They came through like 5 times in a row. It is wrong that a service like this gets abused by the volunteers and the community. I will no longer support the mobile food pantry.

Why is it wrong if the workers take food too? I happen to help at one locally and know that most of the people helping are on fixed income (mostly senior citizens)and they only take a box after all the other people have come and gone. I've even been prompted to take left-overs by the truck drivers because we're the last stop on their list and fresh foods will get tossed. It's not like they're taking food out anyone's mouth. And you're right, I see people in line that I know are taking home 2-3 by putting family member in line. We, however, are not allowed to comment on it or ask about it. Don't give up on something that does good; just know that you make your donation (whether it be time, money, whatever) with the right spirit and what people do with it is on them, not you.

I work in Galeton with disadvantaged children and have a family with 4 children that is on rough times now. They have lost their food stamps for 3 months. Is thee a food pantry near Galeton? Could this family come to your food pantry in Knowville or elsewhere? when are they open?
