To the Editor,
It seems so ironic – Apple brought out its latest version of an expensive communication device, and we volunteers at the food bank had the unfortunate task of telling clients that the food bank hasn’t got the funds to provide milk at least for the foreseeable future.
What is the message here?
Society can afford unlimited versions of technological wonders but can’t spare the funds for milk for poor people?
And the provincial government that trumpets “families first” doesn’t donate a dime, ever.
But it is very fast to refer needy clients to our services.
We should be ashamed of ourselves.
