There are food pantries and food banks that are designed to help such people. Also food stamps are available for those in need. All this food is given out free of charge. There is no need to break the law to get food.

I sincerely hope that was meant as sarcasm.

Any employee told me she stole a bunch of makeup, not food.

Rejoice, those words come so easily out of your mouth. When was the last time you needed to visit the pantry? Or even donated to one? Pantries are not the horn of plenty as you seem to think. Trying volunteering at one or at a soup kitchen.

@Johnny BGoode, don't be such a phony. anyone can say "an employee told me . . ." Put some substance to it.
