Just found out some disturbing information. My mom works for a center in the state where they take care of people of all ages who are not capable of independence. Its really a shame. Some of the patients were dropped off by their families as small children and have been there their entire lives, even though there isn’t anything wrong with them besides slight mental handicaps.
As awful as that is, that is not the point of this post. The reason I’m going nuts is the way they waste food. I was informed that after the meals are over they dumb the excess food down the disposal. That is ludicrous! I’m not saying that wasting a little food here and there is so awful, but just dumping away all of the extra food?! I don’t mean to sound like those preachy commercials, but honestly, with the hungry not only in Africa and other third world countries, but in OUR OWN COUNTRY, I find this throwing away of food just plain appalling.
