In the Northern France port city of Calais, compassionate French citizens are struggling to feed the thousands of refugees out-skirting the city’s center… and the ungrateful refugees are throwing away the food.
Volunteers are working exceedingly long hours preparing dishes from donated foods which are then dispersed to migrants living outside the city. Approximately 800 meals are being prepared by tireless residents daily.
Claudine, an elderly volunteer who works ten-hour shifts, says she is motivated by a sense of revulsion over what is happening in France and Italy. “The migrants are going hungry,” she says.
One migrant camp that is receiving meals is home to 1,500 illegals living in a forest. The camp’s squatters become so greedy that when volunteers arrive to distribute food they are often overtaken and forced back into their vans. Many of the migrants are unwilling to take only one meal and are found to be stockpiling meal boxes to either consume themselves or sell to weaker migrants for a profit.
At the volunteer warehouse in Calais, ready-made foods are also received as donations. Recently, crates of canned ravioli were donated by a local grocer “as is,” out of date, but edible for up to three years. The volunteers prepared to deliver the ravioli to a local Sudanese-migrant camp because they were a HALAL variety, containing meat prepared according to Islamic law.
Upon delivery, migrants noticed the food was three months expired and claimed they feared food poisoning. Some became rowdy and demonstrated their disgust at being given what was seen as substandard food. They emptied the cans onto the ground where it became too dirty to eat.
Despite being robbed and having their efforts thrown to the ground, the hardworking citizens of Calais press on, their commitment to a growing number of homeless foreigners in their midst expected to continue as long as the problem persists.
