Invest in people’s futures

I am truly sorry the food bank got drawn into this. Helping people is a big investment in the future in my opinion.

I hope Fred Langford enjoys eating popcorn in his warm new seat he helped pay for at the Sidney movie theatre. I’m sure he asked the theatre to account for every penny they received from the community like he requires the food bank to do.

I was shocked to see Fred attack the food bank and use as his example a person smoking and asking for money on the streets of Sidney as the reason to give money to a movie theatre. I see that the Sidney theatre has lowered their monetary goal. You should ask them why they asked for more than they needed since your demanding the food bank account for how they use their donations before you will consider them.

I am truly sorry the food bank got drawn into this. Helping people is a big investment in the future in my opinion.
