But Nanny, That Hurts!

Dave Killion — March 22, 2012

Sorry buddy, no more gruel. It's too high in trans-fats.

“In a move that combines the mayor’s affinity for overbearing health regulations with his controversial stance on homeless shelters already under fire from advocacy groups and City Council members, a new rule barring food donations to shelters is raising even more concern.

CBS reports on the bizarre rule that turns away food, perhaps the most needed item for any shelter, because according to health officials, it’s impossible to gauge the items’ salt, fiber, and other nutritional stats.”

If you were homeless, wouldn’t you prefer food that was potentially high in fat and salt to no food at all?
