Do you ever see people you know?


Do they ever say anything to you (if yes)?

I volunteer at my church's food bank.
Do you notice less people at the beginning of the month?
Have you seem people ride in expensive cars needing food?

We get stuff from the Asian market donated that's usally pretty weird. It always strikes me as odd too because I thought the Asian markets would be more expensive than a regular grocery store. Why would someone spend more money just to donate it? 


Oh wait, that's actually not the weirdest. The weirdest would be a big 15 lb bag of pig food. Note we don't live around any farms lol

What do you need more than anything?? I donate formula and baby food, but it always seems like the shelves are bare, from the way the volunteers talk.

Do you accept diapers, wipes, etc?

Yes

Sometimes. Some say hi and we exchange small talk.

That's nice!

Yes. 

Yes. I wouldn't say it's common but it's not rare either.
