Well my $.02


That supply should have gone to the national food bank for disaster relief, not to local residents who live in the heart of elk country.

I am comfortable saying that because I live here. Residents around here can KO elk all day on a depravation hunt like this. I have been on one. Like shooting a bottle off of a fence.

Too bad Wyoming has that mind set that they only want to help it's residents instead of joining in the fight for hunger across the nation.

In Laramie, we have the soup kitchen, Salvation Army and Inter-faith to assist needy residents of our community.

Well, your partially right Robert, it didn't rott.

Your right Marty. I'm not sure why no food banks or disater relief was thought of or contacted. Another oversite by a federal agency.

I think that the reason that it was not given to a food bank is because it isn't allowed. I tried to give a bunch of meat and things to our food bank, and they refused it. They told me that it had to be canned goods or things like lipton soup etc. Anything that isn't processed in a factory isn't allowed. Me and the wife made a pile of shortbread cookies for Christmas and took them down there and they said that they would eat them, but could not distribute them.

It's a sanitation issue. Anything raw, unpackaged or of unknown origin could have any number of bad things in it; either by accident or on purpose. All it takes is one lawsuit by a sick shelter guest and the end result is tight regulations on what they can be fed.
Elk: it's what's for dinner!

Some of these food banks are so particular in what they will and will not take for food, you wonder just how hungry these people are. They explained it is a matter of storage, distribution, and liability.

I have some real mixed emotions about food banks and "people in need." I was talking to a person who got commodities from a food bank because of their income, etc. They were complaining that the free food they got was not really what they wanted to eat. In fact I know they gave some of it away to other family members.

There are people that really have no idea what hunger is. I am glad the meat was given away and not just wasted...

Good points Cayugad!

I came from a large city to Wyoming. I don't think people realize what homeless is here.
