hunger

This postcard came this week from the USPS, advertising its annual food bank drive. I was miffed last year when, after putting a bag of non-perishables out for pick-up, the carrier ignored it. I think the problem is that the Saturday carrier is a substitute. In the end, I took the bag to my local post office, which always has a collection going.

I put my bag out this morning, and put it in the mailbox (I have a huge box) so I hope he takes it. I will only put top quality food in food bank donations and get really angry when I go to drop-off places and see tons of hideously unhealthy junk food, loaded with high fructose corn syrup, artificial ingredients and low nutritional value. And even more furious when I see expired "use by" dates. I try to avoid drop-off places so I can maintain my composure.

As I was typing, my mailman came and he did indeed take the food.
