Review for Food For The Poor, Coconut Creek, FL, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I have donated for several years now and I had to write because I am very distressed at some of the other reviews and the fact that their star rating was figured in the average. If you don't believe in helping people in other countries, that's your decision, but don't knock Food for the Poor for what they do. I wonder if some of these people have ever received a mailing from FFTP. In America, nowhere is there poverty like in the places FFTP serves. In Haiti, Guatemala and the other countries they help, there are no food banks, WIC or government programs. Children starve to death before their parents eyes and they are helpless. If you choose to ignore that, that's your privilege. The only reason I held off on 5 stars was that I don't see why a CEO of a charitable organization should make such a large salary. Could anyone address this? I have seen it many places and I just don't think it's right.
