Food Banks Must be Closed Down
In Canada today, we have many food banks all over the country that provide food for many families. Those food banks have made many people dependant on the food they provide and also made them forget how to be self-sufficient. Also, the resources it takes to keep the food bank in operation could be put to better uses. Even though having food banks has some pros, the cons heavily out weight them, so therefore food banks must be closed down and people must provide for themselves.
Food banks are some times the main source of food for some people. Food banks are meant to be bandages for people in need, but some people are using it as if it was an everlastingly fix for them. Instead of encouraging the needy people on how to be successful later on, the food banks actually have the opposite effects on people. The food bank makes people dependent on the food it provides, and therefore it makes them non-self sufficient. This can be compared to drugs, drugs can seemly fix your emotional problems but sooner or later you will get addicted and use drugs continually. What if a food bank closes down? What are the people who depend on the food bank going to do? There is an old saying that you either sink or swim so those who are dependent on the food bank will try to provide for them selves. Without food banks people will force themselves to be self-sufficient, and maybe become successful later on.
The food banks take an immense amount of resources to maintain. Those resources used to maintaining the food banks could be put to better uses somewhere else. First of all, the people who die of starvation compared to people who die of is totally insignificant. (I am not saying more people dieing is not important) The money that both the people, and the government provided for the food bank can be switched for advancement in medial studies and technology. The land that foods banks take up are unimaginably big and therefore could be used for many other purposes like building schools or medical centers. To maximize the efficiency of our resources food banks should be closed down.
