Most if what I was given at the time were random almost expired cans of chickpeas and a loaf of uncut bread without a packet and maybe a bunch of herbs and doughnuts for some weird reason :/
    Wow when I have do up hampers.
    I always try and put a pasta of some sort, a tomato paste/soup/pasta sauce. Tin spaghetti and bake beans. Rice. Tin veg. A few baby foods if don't know there is a baby as Jic. Tin tuna. Vegimite. Long life milk. Weetbix or corn flakes depending on whst we have. Sometimes I have treat food like chocolates or biscuits I will include them.
    Than the frozen bread/rolls/pull a parts . Butter. Cheese. And 1 pkt of sausages or mince if I have it.

    Never anything out of date.
    I am surprised that other churches do.

    Edit these are families. The homeless we feed ready made meals from a van.

    Our local emergency food people are lovely. When they are running out of space they will ring and see how you are going if you are a recent client. I will admit I got lots of chickpeas too but always got offered treat food like milo, biscuits and cordial. There was even the offer of formula and nappies.

    Back on topic I think the attitude was poor. Homeless people aren't second class citizens.
