Who Robs Food Banks? 

Sometimes life is more exciting than you want.
First, the bad news - we were robbed. 

Please read to the end for the good news.

Who Robs a Food Bank?

We recently had a person come to Hotel Dieu for Women who was supposed to be a volunteer who had been in a battered women's shelter.
Long story - short : I  was kept awake for 4 days and nights straight, drugged, then hauled off to a emergency ward then a mental health unit based on the lies of the volunteer.
When I finally got  home, the volunteer had taken my phone, emptied the food bank and my cupboards, and swapped shoddy items for my clothes and furniture.
Fortunately,  I am alive. Unfortunately, the police are refusing to take a statement.
This has been a huge learning experience and new volunteer policies are being put in place as well as food security policies.
