Community Action Partnership (CAP) has announced that FDA food distribution in the Inland Empire will continue, despite the government shutdown. While authorities have threatened to cut off food stamps (SNAP/EBT) in November if the government shutdown continues, food banks plan to continue providing food for the hungry.
letting the public know that the CAPSBC Food Bank is able to provide uninterrupted monthly USDA food distributions and support for soup kitchens through our network of nearly 200 churches, schools, community centers and shelters throughout the county.
In addition to the federally funded USDA commodities program, we have been fortunate to receive support from private corporations and foundations to sustain operations for our customers in need. For more information on site locations, distribution times, etc. visit our website at http://www.capsbc.org/
FDA food distribution is provided at Community Action Partnership of San Bernardino County Food Bank, 696 S. Tippecanoe Ave., San Bernardino, CA 92408
Other food banks in the Inland Empire, many of which are funded by private donations and charitable organizations, also plan to continue distributing food.
After all, the government shutdown is a farce. While national parks, monuments and memorials are "shut down", the government continues spending our tax money at an alarming rate. Moreover,the furloughed federal employees will get paid for all the time when they were not working, so why were they furloughed? Certainly it is not to save money, so it must be yet another ploy to punish the American people for standing up against Big Brother.
The federal government is cutting "entitlements", including welfare, food stamps, medicare and social security, while spending billions in foreign aid, and while keeping open the President's golf course and the Congressional gym. The looters in Washington, D.C. still have their fat salaries, which are more than twice what the average American earns for full-time work, plus lavish expense accounts and pensions with full health care benefits that would make a millionaire envious.
Wake up, people! the A"government shutdown" is simply another punishment meant to put you in your place as a slave to the bureaucracy and the bloated multinational corporations. Wake up, stand up and speak up, before it is too late.
