当农民好,当农民好


每个周五,我们农民小团体的义工们集合起来给低收入人群分发免费的食物。今天的场面相当壮观,一卡车一卡车的食物从各大超市拉到我们的小仓库,都是各个超市捐给我们的,什么winco, costco, oroweat, 就连专卖local organic food的co-op都捐来一大堆价格不菲的食物。 分发的食物有我们农民小团体自己种的蔬菜水果,有超市来的面包,鸡鸭鱼肉鹅,等等等等。这些食物都是当天一大早拉来的,不用担心质量问题,而且都在保鲜期内。

在给大家分之前,义工们可以先挑自己要的食物,要多少都没人管你。我挑了满满一箱,头说,你怎么拿这么少?人家一般至少拿三箱。我说我这些都是给朋友拿的,因为明天就要参加一个暑期学校了,就没时间做饭了。头说,那你多拿点冷冻食物,暑期学校结束以后还能吃,然后随手往我箱子里塞了个冷冻羊腿,羊心,牛肉,和salmon鱼。

你看看你看看,当农民多好啊!

    为啥你们还能挑啊? 不是发给低收入人群的么

    I don\’t really get the idea of supplying organic food to satisfy people\’s basic needs. Donating food to save people\’s life or advertise yourself? It\’s obvious that quantity makes better sense than quality here…

  4. Yao说道:

    To houge: junk food refers to food that tastes good but is high in calories having little nutritional value, but they are not really…To Joy: yeah..that\’s the benefits for the volunteers I guess…To feifei: actually what happened was any store can contribute to helping low-income households, and one of the local organic food store wished to help as well, so it donated their food.

  5. FAYE说道:

    Wouldn\’t it be a more practical solution if these organic food stores buy more cheaper non-organic food to feed a larger group of peole under the same cost ? I think the point really is to advertise their own brand. Otherwise, people like you, wouldn\’t know the real donnator, and hence people like me wouldn\’t be given their names through your blog article. I just don\’t see their faith …….

  6. Yao说道:

    To feifei: I guess it might not make too much sense if the organic food store BUYs food (whether organic or non-organic) for the poor, because they are not a charity organization. But as the "best sell by" date approaches, they may feel it\’s not likely to sell it by then, why don\’t we just give the food to people who need them?

  7. Yao说道:

    As for the advertising, I guess whether we are cynical or not about their motives, the low-income do get what they need, that\’s what really matters, right? I wouldn\’t worry too much about their "faith", since the stores are for-profit businesses per se, it would make sense that they adopt feasible business strategies to gain good reputations for their companies.

    妈的,美国也这么腐败,不过也算劫富济贫了。劫富济贫的人拿点也好,都别装B,装B得不了A,还容易缺维生素C

    Organic food can\’t be sold wery well everywhere,no matter in China or in USA
