All of the homeless are on food stamps anyway. All of those bums sell their food stamps for drugs and alcohol and then mooch for free food at the food banks. No wonder they closed. They were sick of moochers.
Food banks first started to help struggling families. Over the years it turned into nothing but bums. There's nothing worse than seeing the same drug addicts coming back time an time again. They have nothing going for them, yet they feel they deserve handouts. Wrong.

You get nothing from people when you only give, it robs their pride and their sense of reality. They started one of these in my little town and I think it is bull. If the people wanted to work I would give them work to do for food, no one asks, they just expect!
