I watched the report on television about the cooperative alliance between the Lima Police Department and the West Ohio Food Bank to provide “essential” items to people in need.
The idea is great , but the items chosen to show were anything but essential. The packages shown included Kit Kats, M&Ms, jellybeans and Tic Tacs. Those are not essential items. A jar of peanut butter, a loaf of bread or a few cans of soup would be more appropriate to those in need of food.
I think the West Ohio Food Bank should be interested in good nutrition instead of promoting junk food.
