When Feeding the starving, what is the most important consideration?

Keeping them from starving to death, or making sure they have a well balanced, low salt, low fat diet?



Which is more important?



 




 



Quote:



In conjunction with a mayoral task force and the Health Department, the Department of Homeless Services recently started enforcing new nutritional rules for food served at city shelters. Since DHS can’t assess the nutritional content of donated food, shelters have to turn away good Samaritans…



DHS Commissioner Seth Diamond says the ban on food donations is consistent with Mayor Bloomberg’s emphasis on improving nutrition for all New Yorkers. A new interagency document controls what can be served at facilities — dictating serving sizes as well as salt, fat and calorie contents, plus fiber minimums and condiment recommendations.



The city also cites food-safety issues with donations, but it’s clear that the real driver behind the ban is the Bloomberg dietary diktats.

Bloomberg has become living proof that some folks don't have the brains God gave geese. :kook:

 

This is classic wasted brain matter. Sharing leftover food is a time honored tradition in NYC, and this boob should know that. I fully expect the Mayor to be forced to back down over this. It will become a major embarrassment to him. :o

I would expect other major cities to say; " look at the steps NY is taking and we should follow suit, or make bigger strides."

There is a huge NYC food share program that actually goes to restaurants & big caterers, and picks up left over meals, and such. NYC Food Share? :huh:

 

You wouldn't normally think that a Jewish mayor would be such a food Nazi, would you? :squid: But Der Food Fueher Bloomberg pulls it off rather nicely. :dismay:
