No note, no nosh

"...Lower Hutt's food bank is having to turn away people seeking help unless they carry a note from Work and Income New Zealand that they have used up their food allowance..."

I'm only surprised that they weren't doing this years ago!

I have heard several anecdotal tales of bludgers going along 'to get the free food', just to save them the bother of having to pay for food. These bludging leeches WORKED at the same place as my informant, BTW.

They should also hand out copies of WINZ's excellent Cookbook for Dummies! (get Pak & Save to sponsor it!)- I hear that much of the food in the packages is refused as they don't know what to do with such esoteric ingredients as flour...
