My father in law receives frozen kosher meals from his insurance company every week. He doesnt like how they taste. There is a poor Jew comes to our shul that could really use food every week and for Shabbos. Is it mutar to take the food that my father in law receives and give it to this poor Jew, or do we have to tell the insurance company that we no longer want to receive the meals because my father in law doesn’t like them?

Answer:

As long as this is part of his insurance benefit plan he is entitled to receive the meals. He could eat them if he wants, and perhaps from time to time he will. They may also change the meals at some point. However, if they inquire as to his use of the food, he must be truthful with them.
