I would be. I am more for cooking healthy foods but if for some reason you can't and need to get already prepared foods I would rather places like chipotle, and this other place that I can't remember but they serve whole foods and lots of veggies. But I don't thinnk there are many "healthy" fast food places around.

Do these fast food eateries still offer $1 menus??

There are working poor who are only eating one meal or less a day so if they can eat for $2, it's better than hunger.
 
why yes.  yes they do.  even mcdonalds has a cheap/quick/healthly salad.  i mean, just as "healthy" as the heavily pesticide sprayed genetically altered veggies in the grocery market... Sleepy

First priority, feed as many hungry people possible. Second priority, feed them as healthfully as possible.

I think that SNAP should be modeled after the WIC program. We have an idea of what is "healthy", real whole foods should be the focus of the program. It doesn't matter whether you get the food from a convenience store, kroger/safeway, or Whole Foods.

so the program was doing what it was supposed to

sorry, this may not be relevant to this thread at all lol
it does. They should focus on making them available at most farmers markets
 
Clap  but most of the locally organically grown veggies/fruits are more expensive of course...

I agree.

And we already have a mechanism for it. We feed school kids free breakfast and lunch. May as well send a few thousand extra meals and have any adults who need food assistance show up to pick up their breakfast and lunch in the morning. Obviously logistics would have to be worked out, but I think it could be one of the alternatives, certainly would encourage more parental involvement in school.

I think that idea would be almost impossible to work maysay. People have so many different types of diets. Its easier to let people go to the grocery store and buy their own food that they prefer to eat. Who wants to be forced to stand in a food line everyday?

Off topic: In some hood corner stores you can buy beer with food stamps. I think they just scan a food item but not sure. When I was young my aunt gave me some food stamps(back when it was bills) and I went and got her some beer.

This is strictly for financial gain of the company and not the well being of those who have ebt.

Eta: back home they have a Farmer's market right outside of the WIC office and WIC provides you additional checks for the market. This is in the 'burbs, I'm not sure if they had the same thing in the inner-city.
