Don’t leave food for homeless at MIC

Editor,

To the person who is leaving boxes and bags of food at the Moab Information Center: Please take it to the food bank. Even though your intent is good, our homeless neighbors don’t always come by the MIC in a timely fashion and the food ends up spoiling or being ransacked by ravens. Also, if a homeless person does happen to show up, they only have two hands with which to carry the food, and often times, they end up stashing it someplace else on the MIC grounds and then forgetting where they put it.

Thanks for your help with this matter.
