Andi Elliott: It’s This Easy to Scam the Food Bank???

January 29th, 2011 by Halli

You could have “knocked me over with a feather” when I discovered that my family qualifies to receive food from the local Food Banks. So, I spent some time this morning calling local food banks to verify. With a home, several cars, and multiple streams of income, I still can simply go down to a food bank, fill out an application (no documentation required) and pick up my food. No wonder I see folks drive up in their big SUVs for their boxes of food…you don’t even need to provide a birth certificate (not that Obama does either). You gotta be kidding! I could afford a sizeable car payment if I had no grocery bill.

All that one needs to do is simply list the birth dates of the people in your household. We could do as my welfare clients were known to do…get your neighbor’s kids…in order to qualify for greater benefits. After all, no one’s checking.

Since the Food Banks are so well supplied with food then they obviously no longer need my donations. Boy Scouts, please don’t come by my house to pick up donated items. Our donations are meant for folks that truly are in need…not to be handed out to anyone who wants to scam the system. There needs to be some type of accountability here. This is incredible!

BTW, if we are “aiding and abetting” illegals with our food donations, does that make us complicit in breaking the law? I’m just wondering out loud.
