On the other side, conservatives (and Christians) tend to be the ones who spend more time actually manning the soup kitchens and food banks.
I have spent some time manning soup kitchens and food banks.
Back in Arkansas Karen and I were as poor as church mice and so a bit of volunteering was prescribed as a means to an end, namely that of getting a bit more in our paper sack at the end of the day.
Conservatives manning the soup kitchens and food banks?
I am so sorry, but they manned the offices, they manned the books and they manned the public pulpit but the folks actually handing out the soup and food were not "according to Hoyle conservatives" except maybe in a nominal sense.
The Jonesboro Church of the Nazarene booted the two of us out of the congregation. We could not afford to marry because my job at the pallet factory would put us in too high of an income bracket for Daryl to receive the three open heart surgeries before age five that he needed in order to survive.
My job banging pallets together paid a whopping $7.25 an hour.
So when it was discovered that we were "cohabitatin' undercover" it was decided that we were putting Pastor Ken Stallings in an untenable position. And we were no longer welcome at their food bank either.
That is the reality of food banks and soup kitchens in the conservative world.
