    sadly fox doesn't cite any official source for their info. But, they did include this at the very end:

    "The city also cites food-safety issues with donations..."

    Nanny Bloomberg Bans Food Donations to Homeless Shelters: Too Salty! - Michael Bloomberg - Fox Nation

    It's also worth noting that this was done in March and tat it only applies to centers run by NYC. It does not apply to any private shelters.


    Is this journalism hyping to promote page hits?
    idk
    Nothing new about selective enforcement here. The ban on anything over 16oz does not apply to all companies either. It mainly applies to small buisnesses like convience stores, food carts, and theatre's. Grocery stores can still sell em.

    Besides, its just one small baby step. I'm sure that eventually ole' Bloomberg would love to totally ban anything even remotely unhealthy when it comes to food. The way he's acting meat will be banned, ice cream will be banned..hell just to make it easier on my self..about the only thing that probably won't be banned is lettuce.
    I have an answer for everything...you may not like the answer or it may not satisfy your curiosity..but it will still be an answer. ~ Kal'Stang

    Ah, yes.
    That ubiquitous slippery slope.
    I may be wrong.
