Thanks!

Paul Ryan's budget plan, thankfully rejected by the Senate, but still supported by Republicans, would effectively gut the food stamp program.

Converting SNAP to a block grant, as Chairman Ryan proposes to do beginning in 2015, would hurt the tens of millions of Americans who rely on the program. SNAP would largely lose the ability to respond to rising need, forcing states during economic downturns to cut benefits or create waiting lists for needy families.

If you make calls to your local representative, please urge them to leave SNAP alone.

I wonder if he's just being willfully ignorant or if he really doesn't understand that poor people can end up overweight because healthy foods tend to be too expensive for them purchase.

When all you can afford is pasta, rice and beans, yeah, that stuff can make you fat. Also considering the paucity of supermarkets in the inner city that sell fresh fruit and vegetables, a diet of pasta, rice and beans (supplemented by fast food) is both fattening and also inadequate for proper nutrition.

And also, the poor can't even grow gardens! In many inner city areas, the soil in vacant lots is contaminated by industrial pollutants.

Thanks for that. Starches are cheap and turn into sugar almost immediately in your system.

HuffPo has an article up today about a Fresh Food Mobile that brings fresh produces to hundreds of people without access.

[Link: www.huffingtonpost.com...]

For hundreds of thousands of Chicagoans, the nearest fresh fruits and vegetables are a mile or more away. This leaves residents stuck either taking long rides on public transportation and bringing back only what they can carry, or eating the processed and packaged foods available at the corner store.
