It is the begging time of the year. We have lived in several areas in Utah. Every year at this time, the LDS wards deliver food such as turkeys, stuffing etc. to those in need in the neighborhood. Not just LDS members, but also those who are not members. Every area is different in who they help. Other groups also do this at Thanksgiving and Christmas. It is possible that many of these people are also going to the food banks to collect stuff too. From my experience, many of the people are not really needy, just greedy. They save a little money by going there, then spend the cash they would have spent on new toys. Our family has chosen not to donate to the food bank.

@sally

Have you ever volunteered at a food bank? Have you ever delivered meals to invalids and shut-ins who desperately need that one meal each day? Do you know the circumstances of every person walking into a food bank for assistance?

I would highly recommend that you read Matthew 7.

I remember a time not so long ago when people would hide their vile hatered towards their fellow man and at least try to pretend to be christ like, I miss those days.
