So?
Donuts are portable. They could put them at the door to take with them.

No my FRiend, this is an agenda.

I worked the St. Augustine’s Food Bank in Cleveland. We handed EVERYTHING out. If it was donated, it went. As long as it wasn’t moldy, we either cooked it as an ingredient or gave it away for later.

If these people are truly hungry they will appreciate a snack when the shelter is not open or for a friend on the street they can’t get to come in.

The homeless and hungry care about food, not what is healthy for them.

It must vary. I work a kitchen here that is run by a couple of culinary school grads that produces very good meals at an amazingly cheap price. I see them get donations though, that they just can't use for a variety of reasons. Sometimes it's stuff that's too old or they can't verify the provenance. They're very gracious even if they know they can't use something.

I don't know what they'd do with donuts as it doesn't fit their menu at all. Maybe they could figure out a way to grind some into their pizza dough. They do a very healthy and filling pizza from scratch.

Agreed. I've heard donuts referred to as "Maine soul food."

There's a reason some things are called comfort food.
