Juneau doesn't need this kind of 'neighbor'

Posted: Wednesday, January 18, 2006

Now let me get this straight. Wal-Mart and Sam's Club are no longer donating surplus food to food banks so that the food banks "can manage their resources better." That is, they will no longer have as many resources to manage. True, they will donate some money, but I bet the money will in no way buy as many pounds of food as donations provided. By providing more "waste" for landfills, do we also make it easier for them to manage their resources? I love the logic.

As a Glory Hole volunteer, I object to this notion. I don't appreciate this kind of "neighbor" moving in to Juneau where other businesses have been generous in their support of the local food bank.
