Bloomberg banned food donations to homeless shelters

By zzyzzx   2012 Nov 9, 4:31am   1,261 views   6 comments   watch (1)   quote

Mayor Michael Bloomberg in March instituted a ban on food donations to homeless shelters. No, not because of food contamination, but because the city can’t properly assess salt, fat and fiber in donated food and thereby ensure starving people are getting the optimal levels of nutrition.

It's more important to have healthy(ish) food sometimes than to have any food all the time.

makes it hard to explain why we see "EBT taken here" at the fast food places and not at the health food places.
