"Winnipeg: A busy church food bank, known for offering warm drinks and snacks to its regulars, has announced it's closing because it is attracting too many poor people.
"It's attracting a lot of street people that make it uncomfortable,' said Charlotte Prossen, Unity Truth Centre minister Thursday, 'It's creating social unrest in the church'
"'A food bank is a social service and that is not who we are'
"Ms. Prossen said the program is being cancelled to focus on more church-specific activities. The church's board of trustees made the decision to cancel the bimonthly food bank after receiving an e-mail from a sister church in Victoria.

Is there anything positive about religion other than the people who still believe in their delusions, and still believe in this Santa clause guy?

Poor people always have a way of messing up a good thing. Hungry? Get a freaking job.
Probably tired of the bums eating and running. Wonder if they ever got an offer to help serve the food or clean up afterwards? Probably not.
Name one social program meant to help the poor that the poor hasn't took advantage of and ruined for everyone else.
Social Security, Unemployment, Welfare? Name one.

The "church" in Victoria has had issues not with the poor, but with the drug addicts who abuse the generosity of the "church" and show no respect for the attending members.
