    I think all of these food giveaways are absolutely fantastic and great for the people in need but I do have 2 issues with it. Number one is unfortunately there is no way of knowing if the people picking up the food are actually in need or not. I know it shouldn’t be that way but there have been those that more then can afford to get their own yet still get in line because it’s FREE. The second item is basically a question, What happens to the elderly, handicapped, or those just unable to drive to get there and don’t have anyone to go for them? Is there any number they can call to try and arrange something?
