When they run out of free food,sitting in line burning gas in their Automobiles then you will see how the middle class remnants are going to fade away to becoming poor on welfare.

Sell your car and if you can and walk to a store with a food card and walk home if you still have one with groceries and watch out for those food bandits. America is never coming back to having a large middle class anymore.

The politicans are going to have to live in walled communities and preach sacrifice for the green revolution behind bullet proof glass before long.

In the past month there has been a steady stream of reports from pantries across the US stating that they are now hitting record high demand and record low supply. From New York to Wisconsin to Ohio to Missouri to Florida to Arkansas to California and beyond, pantries are running out. On top of that, it's the middle of summer – The busiest time for food banks and the Salvation Army is during the winter holidays.

The majority of pantries indicate that they are most in need of cash donations and that these have started to fade out. When it comes to necessities, most people will not or cannot reduce the frequency of their purchases. Food, gas, housing, utilities, etc. are fixed income costs, and when these costs rise workers must cut costs elsewhere. Charities are usually the first to see the chopping block.

    Very sad to hear but not surprising. Every visit to my local grocery store makes my blood pressure go up along with the dang rising prices on everything! I find myself mumbling cuss words under my breath when I see the same item I paid x for a week ago is now x ++! 😡

    A page from Sun Tsu. The bit about using your foe's supply and not dipping in to yours. It's not like they're checking IDs.

    Went by the largest one in the area the other day to go to the license branch. They were lined up along the road for at least a mile.

    More than likely The U.N. will step in to control food distributions across the world in a crisis.The International Corporations With The Great Reset and The New green deal with a carbon footprint control will be their New normal and They will use World socialism for all supply chain shortages.

    No more local farmers selling produce and meats without a co2 foot print monoring system in place. No more cash sales either.

    One of the communist's fearless leaders, Bernie Sanders, said OUTLOUD that food lines are a GOOD thing. That means the govt HAS food to provide!

    That my friends is a view inside of a warped mind!

    In years past, Judy worked with a local church that has a food bank. Not sure what the actual criteria is, but the recipients must apply and fill out a questionnaire to be eligible. On distribution days, you didn't see a lot of new cars or $200 tennis shoes. Because of the pandemic, monetary donations have been turned into gift cards, good only at the local grocery store. Before, Judy would use those donations to buy in bulk at that same store and the actual items passed out. They still do local food drives and deliver to some of their homebound folks. Since they are a private entity they can get away with the vetting, while a lot of other organizations can't and the greedy can take advantage. If all organizations could limit their clientele to the truly needy, I bet there wouldn't be a problem with shortages. Bob

    We are seeing just the opposite here. We used to grow a lot of veggies for the local Food Pantry as did several neighbors. The Food Pantry has asked us to stop dropping stuff off because their number of clients has dropped way off. They blame all the free money from the Feds, state, and county. Former clients have told them that they prefer to purchase food using the free money instead of taking the free handouts.

    I will pay the shipping for some fresh vegetables! 😁😎

    Prob with fresh veggies.....you have to cook em. People buying stuff with "free" money, buy things that are already cooked or processed and just needs zapping in the microwave or thrown in the oven.

    Liable to be subjected to the self righteous , egocentric church ladies idea of who qualifies as worthy of food. And anti-taxation anarchists calling everyone else a commie Marxist. Open forums are loaded with them since Trump's tweeting. Radicals trying to re-write the US Constitution. "Promote the general welfare" You don't do that by causing vagrants for prison labor.

    You should realize that language is always evolving. Welfare in the context of the preamble to the constitution means that the government will help to guarantee that the individual has the opportunity to prosper and be successful and thus be happy. Only in recent history has the definition of welfare been perverted to mean government handouts.

    As for your, " self righteous, egocentric church ladies" comment that I assume was in response to my earlier post, I did some checking. The questionnaire that is filled out contains little more than famiy income level, number of family members, ages and what agency referred them to the church. The people must be referred by an agency and that weeds out the non-needy that take advantage of these programs. This is a medium size church in a relatively small community and they are able to help about 100 truly needy families. So you can take your self righteous, egocentric comment and put it where the sun don't shine! Bob

    They want all charity to come from the government under socialism eventually.Agenda 2030 with multi national corporations will package there food accordingly with a co2 footprint with nutritional values and ingredients,Corporate farming with distributions centers will all be controlled down to your debit card for tracking your food intake.
