Food Police

Mayor Bloombers of the once great city of New York strikes again.

It appears that he is very concerned about the homeless and their diets.  For years a local synagogue has been donating freshly cooked foods to city shelters.  Now the mayor has decreed that these shelters shall no longer accept food without a nutritional label.  He's very concerned that the homeless receive the correct portion size and limit the salt contained in the food.  The food served in the shelters should only be provided by the city.

It looks like the mayor is more concerned with limiting fat and salt from the diets of homeless people than with accepting good food from volunteers.  OR is this a way to expand the nanny state by making more people dependent on the services of Big Brother?  I don't like the way this is going.

There were good people donating to and working in homeless shelters on a volunteer basis and at no cost to the city.  You'd think in these times of tight budgets he'd welcome the donations.

How ridulious is this one! Is is not better to have something to eat? Any food has to be better than no food. Where will this stop? Shameful. And all the wasted food in this country! To say nothing about all the money and hard labor getting the food to the people and then it is thrown out. linda
