How is that being a hypocrite? and you really need to learn to spell. Whats the matter? Pissed that you did nothing to help the poor? Should they forgo buying Christmas presents for their children and give all that money to the poor? Should they not enjoy a mean with their family at a restaurant when they WORK for the money? You are pathetic!

My neighbors brought some of those meals by the other night and dropped them off. I told them they were "Appreciated, but not needed". Our family had plenty to eat this year, and that food should have went to others who are having a hard time or to a senior citizen that didn't have anything else. Kind of a waste in my opinion. Was there no one else in the surrounding counties thay could have provided food for?

think it was a great gesture too help the people who couldn't afford a t-giving meal. Too the churches who helped, Thanx. You provide a needed service too many in need.

what pisses me off is when people thank thanksgiving is just about food when it is about how all those poor inasint indians who should be the ones we should bow down too. i am half cherikee an i wasnt raised to eat huge meals like most of u all. we did all we could to get by half the time, but we allways had a full tummy when went to bed. food shelter and living is what we should be thankful for...

That statement reminds me how some present day african americans act as if they are owed something because of slavery.If you was not forced to pick cotten while wearing chains, you did not suffer anything. get over it

These churches try to impress you with the number of meals delivered, and thereby create a good public image. It's not about poor people who don't have food, it's a public relations effort. Ask where all the meals go, and to whom. You'll find that most go to places where large numbers can be easily delivered, but not to poor people who actually need them. For example, hundreds go to Cookeville Regional Medical Center. Yea, the poor doctors, nurses, and staff there really need them! Last year a couple of organizations that work with homeless people asked if they could pick up some of the meals and deliver them to their clients. The churches refused, saying that they would not be able to ensure that the meals were delivered within 30 minutes of preparation. Like someone living under a bridge really would care! The organizations asked if they could at least pick up meals and deliver them to specific homeless client families who were known to be staying at locations such as Winona Motel, Eastwood Motel, Star Motor Inn, Alpine Lodge, Park Terrace, etc. The churches reluctantly agreed, but when the volunteers from the homeless advocacy groups showed up to pick up the meals, the churches said they did not have enough food. The advocacy volunteers had to visit each of the families that were anticipating a meal that day and inform them that the meal was not coming. Sorry, but I have not seen anything good from this effort. These same churches could donate this huge amount of money and food to established organizations in the community that provide food to the verified poor on a daily basis and have a MUCH, MUCH greater impact. But then, the headlines would not look as good, and they would not be the beneficiaries of the advertisement that they receive.

Think so? Check it out yourself. Ask the churches involved exactly how many meals went to what locations. Ask them specifically how many went to people who were known to be in need, and how that was determined. Ask what their specific criteria were. Like another who commented on this site, they came to our house and offered a meal. We emphatically told them to seek out someone who actually needed it.

Pay no attention to the troll. He's just a little upset because he was on here all day yesterday yanking on his.cranker posting while everyone had a nice holiday with friends and family - two things he doesn't have; kind of makes you feel thankful that you have children to share your life with. To follow shortly: rantings of the troll who speaks in the third person.
