They're not #ing banning cafeterias...they're banning places providing free lunch because these places have thousands of employees. They're not banning you from taking lunch, or eating lunch at your work. They're doing it because giant subsidized companies are basically taking over towns and providing nothing back. You can still eat your own food at work, you can still get your lunch paid for. Your boss just cant hire 5 star chefs and provide free meals for everyone every day. If you keep reading the article. They will even allow cafeterias if they're open to the genral public and supplied locally. The op's post is so full of bull# just like everything i read on here nowadays.

So, you can't stay isolated and protected in your Ivory Tower?
You can't get in your car at home, drive to work, get out of car, enter work - - - and never mingle with those on the street.
Does sound a bit elitist, doesn't it?
I remember when I worked on the 32nd floor in downtown Los Angeles. I looked down at the people below and felt superior (I was only 20).
Yes, you do feel superior and protected in your Ivory Tower.

These people have lost their collective minds
After reading the source, OP and comments here I'm inferring that as well.
Should local government be able to determine how a company runs its business within the constraints of the law?
A proposal introduced Tuesday to ban employee cafeterias in future San Francisco office buildings represents more than an effort to boost the city’s restaurant scene, backers say.
The nearby city of Mountain View recently barred a new Facebook office from offering free- or reduced-cost meals at its cafeteria, reported the Chronicle.
