It's feeding the homeless when they are done. Doesn't really seem like the best meal you can give someone without a roof over their heads to me!

Yeah very true! They're after some kind of record. They should sell the donuts and donate the proceeds or something useful!

Better yet, don't sell the donuts and just donate the money to a soup kitchen for the homeless. I'm sure DonutKing have that sort of profit/share margin to take that big tax break anyway.

They talk about the obesity crisis in Australia and also the dental health crisis where the strugglers can't afford proper dental care, and yet this is basically a sanctioned event. Screwy!
