Would this bother you. What would you do? Not a post for bashing
My friend has a sister who abuses the system. She will go food pantry hopping for free food. The food pantries by us will ask for proof of income and proof of where you live. That's because food supplies are limited at times. Most places will give to those in a designated distance of their location. Then also to people a designated income or less. That's based on size of family. You can only get food at a place once a month. Friends sister don't tell them she gets money in cash from a bf who lives with her. He pays half of everything. Well her name is on the apartment lease, utilities etc. Her son is an adult and no longer lives at home. So it's just 2 of them. She brags how she has all this food. Her cubboards are loaded. Her upright freezer is full of frozen meats/foods. My friend tells her sister. That's taking food out of really really poor peoples mouths. Many of them kids. The sister says So what. I need it. We eat a lot of food. Making all these excuses why she feels she can take things from the food pantries. When she can afford her own food. Friend says what about the 600$ a month your bf gives you for half the bills. You live pretty well on your income and of the bf's. She says No one knows about that. I don't tell them that. Since there is no proof I get money from my bf. Friend says she almost wanted to turn her sister in to the one place she gets free stuff from. But says she has no proof if the bf gives her sister money or not. I am all for helping the poor out. I bake for our church. That does a turn once a month for the meal program that feeds the poor. I give food and or money to our parishes St. Vincent De Paul Society that runs a food pantry. Figuring one day we might be so poor. I might have to go to a food pantry for help. But as long as we're eating ok each month. I try to help those less off when I can. Ir annoys me people will abuse the system. The people who truly need help don't get it. If you had proof someone was abusing the system like this. Would you turn them in.
