The Lady Speaks

Yet Another Wal-mart Story

Wal-mart says, “Screw the hungry.”

Wal-mart Stores, Inc. announced today it is ending charity food donations from all of its Wal-marts, SuperCenters, and Sam’s Clubs. Fearing a potential lawsuit from a homeless, starving person, Walmart says it will no longer donate nearly-expired and expired food to local groups feeding the hungry. Instead, they’ll be throwing it away.

“If they were giving it away somewhere else that wouldn’t be so bad, but the fact is, it’s going into the garbage,” said Owen Foley of the St. Vincent de Paul Food Locker at Presentation Church in Sacramento. “I mean, there’s a big need.”

Disgusting.
