Should Food Banks Say “No Thank You” to Unhealthy Foods?

The Ottawa Food Bank has announced that they are going to not accept donations of chips, pop, candy and yes KD = Kraft Dinner!


What do you think?


  • Should it be “Beggars can’t be choosers” or that “Everyone deserves access to healthy food?”.

  • Have you ever donated to the food bank?

  • What do you normally donate? Will this affect how and if you donate to the food bank?

  • Do you think that this decision will make a food bank better or worse? Why?


Here’s the link. Then come back and comment on one or all of the questions above. I’d love to hear what you think!
