Help can be distributed in many different ways. Whether one or the other is dignified or not is simply a matter of opinion and not of fact. The fact is that the help is needed and received, thankfully, no matter if it comes in boxes or through magnetic cards! I would belive that the food in the boxes have been purchased at lower prices than the ones offered in regular stores, and so makes little money go further than magnetic cards do. Whether the responsible people in different organizations get extraordinary salaries, I do not know. That should be up to their own conscience and what is reasonable to the public's opinion in comparison to their work load and responsiblity. In any case, ALL help is needed, no matter from where or in what forms it comes.
