The agreement on which everyone signed up for the food bank hamper diet is that we'd commit to a minimum of three days (which is the period of time a hamper theoretically covers) and a maximum of a week (which is how long some people have to make a hamper last sometimes).

As far as I can tell, nearly every single person is stopping after tonight, even people who'd really been planning to go for a week. People are quitting while they still have a fair bit of food left, because they just can't handle the poor quality of it.

I am determined to get to the end of four days (as are a handful of the other divs, I guess because students are tougher than other people and more used to bad food); I might even make it through half of Friday, but all I'm likely to have left for Friday lunch is half a loaf of white bread, a packet of instant oatmeal, and maybe a bit of leftover KD. So I may not hang that tough.

It's really interesting to observe how hard people are finding this, much harder than many of them had anticipated, and in a very short period of time.
