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.


 
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

I agree. Food stamps are meant for survival not to satisfy your sweet tooth. Or fry craving

I agree. Most grocery stores in the hood have a van that offers delivery option where you can call in your order. I have never asked how EBT comes into play, but I guess that they can read off the # and the food gets charged like a credit card. But here, pre-prepared food doesnt fall under that so they would still need to purchase food that requires prep or end up eating a lot of cereal and crap instead b/c they cant necessarily get to the stove for 3 meals a day.

Charitable organizations like Meals on Wheels (my 97 yr old granny volunteers for them and coordinates & supervises the preparation of the meals and I volunteer there too when I visit her) but even that is sometimes with budget cuts is just a cheese sandwich with that little round plastic carton of apple juice and 1 small apple or small orange which isnt enough food to fill an adult.
