NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s food police have struck again!
Outlawed are food donations to homeless shelters because the city can’t assess their salt, fat and fiber content, reports CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer.
Glenn Richter arrived at a West Side synagogue on Monday to collect surplus bagels — fresh nutritious bagels — to donate to the poor.

You can really tell this piss ant of a human has never been hungry. In my life time, I have had my world jerked out from under my feet by the banking fiasco's and know what the street is. Some prefer to live there as permanant residents which is ok in my book.
Why is this idiot still in his position would be my question? Would say it is time make a citizens law that simply states if a duely elected official does not perform in the capacity meant for the people, then he or she can be FIRED just like the rest of us. This kind of person should never hold an office period...........
Do you notice the price of just food and the difference just a couple years have made?
I used to be able to feed two people well back in 2007-2008 for 75.00 a week.... could buy any meats within reason, fruits and salads and vegetables as well as the basic bathroom supplies and house cleaners for that 75.00. The money went far and you ate good for that.
Now if all you have is 75.00 to spend you are not getting any fruit that is not bananas because any other kind of fruit is too expensive, you are eating casseroles because they stretch (no more roast!) salad is a thing of the past as you cant fit it into the budget and vegetables are only the cheapest you can find.
This is what we are facing, and it is only 5 years later. Havent you noticed this in your own budget? At this rate of grocery store inflation, soon many will be unable to eat, and wont qualify for any financial assistance because they make too much money...... what happens then?
creature comforts will soon be a thing of the past for many!
