Letter: Worried about food waste

Posted 10/26/22

I believe in helping people. We gave half our stimulus check and half our Tabor check to the Food bank. If someone is caught stealing food in the store I’d gladly pay. But I am very reluctant about voting Yes on Proposition FF.

Letter: Worried about food waste

I believe in helping people. We gave half our stimulus check and half our Tabor check to the Food bank. If someone is caught stealing food in the store I’d gladly pay. But I am very reluctant about voting Yes on Proposition FF. Why you ask? Because I saw what happened when the Obama changes were implemented. I was a volunteer, and they had 35 gallon rolling trash cans with wasted food. Wasted food is a sin. I would garner all the hamburgers to feed my dogs. Kids gladly lick their plates with vanilla yogurt, but they want certain foods. The Food Police dictate what schools should serve. I’m afraid that we will have thousands of pounds of wasted foods! It’s real. Kids need healthy foods, but they hate beans. I’m very reluctant, though I totally approve of free meals. My lunch was 35 cents in the 1950s. We had great bakers, fantastic cinnamon rolls. Only the spinach went into the trash. But thousands of pounds is over the top! Give kids healthy foods, but what they like!
