that's not the only fast food options tho...and if they wanted that every now and then...i don't care...


I'm talking about that specific situation. If a  person is so disabled that they must rely on prepared foods then the only options available to them are places that deliver. Here that's pizza and chinese food.

If they had a caretaker or community help then they wouldn't need fast food in the first place. But a person in this position would completely dependent on it, it wouldn't be every now and then.

And that is not a good option for anyone.

come to find out this bish didn't eat her first ho ho until she was 17

no joke

she was mad her family grew up poor and they couldn't afford cupcakes and ish and felt if she went without so should others

but she would try and act like it was a health issue yet never mentioned community gardens and food education programs

also talked about walking 2 miles to whole foods with bags of food and said if she can do it everyone else can too


I feel like your coworker and I would get along.

That was the norm here until 1-2 years ago, even at all grocery stores. It wasnt even considered a work around. The rules would usually be prominently stated on the wall of what could and couldnt be bought with EBT and the steaming at no charge was detailed in the posted sign so it wasnt covert. You would pay for the raw food b4 they steam the fish. I dont really know what made the gvmt stop that.

.........we asked how often and how much did they spend on fast food

only found information for the control group, less than 10% reported eating one of their daily meals away from home at a fast food restaurant


yeah...i wouldn't expect the majority would just wild out on fast food...

oh here (in the hood mind you) other places deliver...but ok...i agree there should be other programs in place for completely sedentary citizens with no alternate  support whatsoever...

Fail or no fail, it is a reality.

I personally know and care about people that are in very bad situations like that. They make due the best that they can and are not always eligible for a caretaker. Most of the home health aide programs where the aide cooks for the recipient that offer benefits to people eligible for certain types of medicaid have very, very long waiting lists. I have helped people get onto the lists and I know people that are in management level at those companies and those programs are usually the 1st to get goverment cut backs when the gvmt balance their budgets.

NJ I know it. Believe me, I see it all the time.

I just know that ultimately we're doing ourselves a disservice by going about things this way. These companies are the reason why people can't afford to feed themselves and their families. There are much better ways to get food to the people who need it.

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
You forgot the tons of water on Greens . Ouch I love mcdonalds crispy ranch salad . Smile
