In-laws & food bank issue

The problem is, instead of going to 1 food bank (which I thought was the law in my state), they go to 3 or 4. They collect the maximum amount of food at each. When they get home, they go through all the food, keep what they want, then hand out the rest to family and friends. They go to a different food bank almost everyday.
It's my opinion they are visiting different food banks so they can get enough of the food they like to eat (very picky eaters). However, my biggest concern is the amount of food my in-laws are handing away - about $30 worth to each friend/family member. I'm worred about other families/children in our area who really don't have enough food that my in-laws are taking it from.
I don't know - maybe I'm just "making a mountain out of a molehill" here, but, I just feel it is morally wrong for them to be doing this. Any opinions?
