A group of Walmart employees posted a photo to Facebook on Thursday showing a food bin at a store in Oklahoma that was apparently put out as part of a food drive to help needy employees.

The accompanying caption for the photo detailed how Walmart holds interoffice food drives for hungry employees “rather than agree to pay a decent wage or provide full-time hours.”

The photo was posted to the “Making Change” page, a campaign which describes its mission as “challenging Walmart to act responsibly and help rebuild our economy.”

Last year, Walmart was criticized for setting up donation bins at a store in Ohio. During that drive, Kory Lundberg, spokesperson for the company, told The Plain Dealer newspaper that the drive was evidence that employees care about one another.
