  1. I’ve been these people, but was fortunate enough to not need to visit the food bank. I suspect the food bank could play a role in helping people to shop, when they do shop, differently. There are many less expensive vegetarian options that few omnivores truly consider. Rice & beans; lentils; eggs. Good quality protein and comparatively inexpensive. Do the food banks include economy nutrition education in their services? There could be an unexplored opportunity here.

  2. “The Poor Are Getting Poorer?” Waldo, is this what you really wish to say. Let’s say there were 100 people using the food bank and now there’s 251. That represents a 151% increase but are they poorer?
