    We have an incredible food bank in my area, but it doesn't have restrictions.  Running a shelter or soup kitchen, for example, means we get food for "mass feeding" but can't give away items to individuals.
    Having these donations from the Post Office allows us to help some folks  we couldn't otherwise.
    In general, I agree with the "cash is best" argument, but these donated goods are also useful.
