I was denied food last week at the Madison location. They were extremely rude and unhelpful. There were only African Americans allowed to assist. I know because I was there two hrs early and offered to help. I was there a total of about 31/2 to 4 hrs and our family record absolutely nothing from your food bank. I am really a very kind and easy going person I just really want you to know that I feel that I was treated unjustly because I am a Hispanic.
