This is all about the plan to destroy the economy and be dependent on the government for survival. You aren't going to get food from private citizens, you have to be dependent on the government for food.

The Bloomberg administration is now taking the term “food police” to new depths, blocking food donations to all government-run facilities that serve the city’s homeless.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...

...They’ve brought freshly cooked, nutrient-rich surplus foods from synagogue events to homeless facilities in the neighborhood. (Disclosure: I know the food is so tasty because I’ve eaten it — I’m an OZ member.) The practice of donating such surplus food to homeless shelters is common among houses of worship in the city.
I know the trendies will believe the official reason given because that's what trendies do, they blindly believe everything, but they should still be angry that shelters are turning down donated food so the government can spend more tax payer dollars to buy the same food.

Actually it is pretty common for companies to ban the same practice. All you need is one homeless person to get sick and they could sue for every penny.

I tried to donate my left over muffin stumps to a homeless shelter and Rebecca Demornay told me they didn't want them.

I love how the very first sentence is how "no donating food to homeless shelters" somehow equates to the destruction of the entire economy by the government.

Come on Kirk, you're slipping. The real reason Bloomberg is doing this is to get more aspartame into the systems of New York citizens.

There is no way to gauge food safety when people are dropping off shit that came from their own kitchen. In a perfect world, people could be canning fruits and vegetables and dropping it off to the homeless, but think of the risks. What if a maniac drops off 1000 canned jars of spaghetti sauce that is laced with rat poison?? While a food company has standards and security and they have a liability for the food if it is tainted and causes illness.

I heard that bitch also wouldn't let you return an expensive art book to Brentano's just because it had been in a bathroom.

I think the risk of the homeless starving is more likely.

Dunno about NYC but when my chick was Health Inspector in MA she would inspect the Food Pantries just like a restaurant... ergo hand wash sinks... hold temperatures... fridge/freezer temps etc...

People have been donating food to the homeless since... well... forever. When was the last time something like that happened?

Think of the amount of canned food drives that go on across the country. You'd think if this was an epidemic, we'd hear about it by now. Hell, I can't remember one story of tainted canned foods affecting homeless people. And, even if it's being kept under wraps, it's just homeless people who are dying.

Odd... In Montana the residents take feeding the poor and hungry very seriously, excess hunting meat is regularly given to the local shelters. But that is a cultural/geographical difference.

It's more of a litigation/lawyer difference.

Jew Yorkers... especially Mrs. Bloomberg, are terrified of lawsuits. One case of Homeless Charlie getting trichinosis from some tainted food bank venison and you're looking at a multi-kajillion dollar lawsuit against the City of Sue York.

Welcome to the world of victim worship.

Reminds me of the razor blades in apples urban legend. I mean, sure, I guess it could happen. But that same theoretical psycho could use his rat poison to kill many people in 50 other ways too. He could also just drive his car down a crowded pedestrian mall or shoot people from a bell tower.

Good point. I'm writing to my Congressman right now and demanding that pedestrian malls and bell towers be outlawed post-haste.
