No they weren't flat, just the weird taste. Note that I didn't drop them myself, I just assumed they had been by someone else. The sixpack that they came from had some cola stains on it so I imagine someone fucked up with it somehow.
The parcels we give out at our Trussell Trust food bank contain the following as standard, in quantities depending on the size of the family requesting them:
Tinned baked beans/spaghetti in sauce
Tinned tomatoes/pasta sauce
Anything else (chocolate, sweets, crisps, jam, noodles) is optional or given as treats when we have them. The parcel is designed to last the family for three days. And we cater to any dietary requirements, they just have to tell us.
As >>11357 says, you have to have a voucher, distributed by one of these 'care professionals'. Although you can just turn up and ask, it's unlikely they'd turn you away.
The Jobcentre is one of these 'care professionals'. It really boils my piss when I get handed a voucher as pictured. They actually have purpose-made paperwork to tell people 'because you missed an appointment that would have been a waste of everyone's time anyway, we're not going to pay you enough to survive for the next few weeks, so off you trot to the third sector instead'. Welfare state my big hairy arse.
