At about 10 this morning, as I was getting ready to go and check the mailbox, so guy walked up with a grocery bag full of stuff. He said he was part of the Adopt-A-Block program from the First Assembly of God Church, shoved the bag at me and left…leaving me standing in the door quite befuddled. I watched as they went to every single house on the street handing out bags, everyone looking just as confused as I felt.
I looked their webiste and found that not only do they run the Food Pantry for the town, but they are going to be roving around on the weekends handing out stuff for the foreseable future. It pisses me off to find out that the items that myself and countless others in town have donated are being wasted by handing it out to people who don’t even need it. There are people here in town that really could use that food.
I was going to take it back up there, but now I think I’m going to give it to the Forney Food Pantry instead since I know that it will go out to a family who really needs it.
