Food drive goal achieved.

Maybe it's the result of being on Fark, but I immediately determined it's a scam to get people to donate.

Perhaps the writer of this would have the service of doing the learning of the difference between the robbery and the burglary. Dumbassing. Nice job of doing this properly Submission Artist of the Year.

Look at the size of the guy in the red shirt compared to the other people!

I wouldn't trust him around food.

Yeah.  "Some cans are on the floor" jumped immediately to "all of the best foods have been stolen!  Post to social media"  awfully quick.

However, some people who run charities can be weird and emotional so...shrug.

It's free food anyway. Been to a food shelter here. They require not only your ID but your current utility bill. Because you know. You may have driven in from out of state or lost your home in foreclosure. Why in the hell would homeless people be in need of food?

I guess I haven't been on Fark long enough, because I think it's genuine. Plus, getting the police involved with your little scam is a really bad idea.

I volunteer at a local food pantry and can tell you there are good reasons for everything you just so casually dismissed. At ours you would also have to provide proof of income and ID for every person in your house. If you don't meet our income guidelines we can't help you. If you aren't in our area we will refer you to the right one.

If you are homeless, it is handled a little differently. For instance, giving you raw meat would just cruel, if not potentially dangerous.

That's not been my experience, maybe it's because I live in a smallish city with a high median income but the one I volunteered at didn't really require you prove anything. If you show up, wait in line and say you don't have food then you are given a box of food. If you have dependents you told us how many. If you are willing to lie to receive slightly more food then well you obviously need it.

Could you explain about the good reasons? Not being snarky. I genuinely would like to know. I mean, is there a problem with well off people sneaking into food pantries to steal from the poor?

My dad was paarked ner our local soup kitchen one time and saw a lady change out of a nice coat and shoes and into a shabby coat and mismatched shoes before getting out of a really nice car to go in and eat

Reminds me of a story a coworker told me, he was almost arrested while working at a liquor store.  There was no dress code, so he was just wearing jeans and a t-shirt, when a cop came in and order him on the ground while he was counting money.  If you saw the guy, you could see why the cop assumed wrong, as he looks menacing.  He's a goofy, always joking guy, but he scares kids.
