    What? Don't support this because the food actually goes to folks who need it? And if you are complaining about the trash, how about getting out there and picking it up?

    well Lickad you are proving yourself once again to be a waste of air......

    Guess you've got a silver spoon in YOUR moouth and want/need for nothing.

    I would urge you all to not support this, some of the food goes to the Good Shepperd kitchen and others like it in downtown Raleigh where after everything is all said and done, mostly all of the food containers turns into litter and is strewn around town.
