Operators of free food banks say they are seeing more working people needing assistance. The increased demand is outstripping supplies and forcing many pantries and food banks to cut portions.

Demand is being driven up by rising costs of food, housing, utilities, health care and gasoline, while food manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers are finding they have less surplus food to donate and government help has decreased, according to Lisa Hamler-Fugitt, executive director of the Ohio Association of Second Harvest Foodbanks.

Wait! Wasn't Bushco's faith based initiative incentive and Community Initiatives for church's across the nation to step up and help the public sector in area's such as this? Not to mention, that I personally hate the fixed ideal that you are supposed to help the less fortunate one or two goddamn days out of the year, the rest of the year they can starve. But it seems to me these drives to help people during the bullshit market driven holidays is nothing more than giving the guilty a guilt free holiday, so they can enjoy their affluence in peace on that day by saying, hey, 'I gave'.

Oh, and one last thing, thanks Bush: The Evangelical Christian Takeover of the Military
