Junk for those in need

I was at Kroger’s last night, and saw a table with a couple plastic and paper bags with some groceries in them. A large sign said “Donate food to the needy” or something along those lines.

There are bags for $3, $5, and $10. Customers can simply buy a bag, then leave it at the store, to be donated to charity.

Sounds good, right?

Well, kind of. Maybe. The problem is that I looked in these bags. And it’s awful food.

One bag had ramen noodles and saltines. That’s not even something people really want to eat, let alone healthy.

If you decide to give this Christmas (or ever), make sure your gift is worth giving. Maybe junk food is better than no food, but can’t we do better?
