    I'm not talking about putting additional money in the 'pockets of the poor', it's about educating them why better nutritional choices will help them in the long run.

    If you give them additional money without information, where do you think they are going to spend that money? And who pays for those choices in the long run?

    Better nutritional choices many of them cannot afford.

    Bull****. I live on $50 a week in food with a healthy vegan diet including multivitamins.

    That 50 dollars a week covers you and your entire family?

    Yeah, and you can do even better by foregoing the vitamins which do nothing for ya.

    Education does not make the unaffordable magically become affordable.

    It appears that you do not understand what the word "affordable" means

    Actually, I need the multis. While much of it is not bioavailable and is just pissed out, it serves as a safety net for my iron, zinc, b-complex and other nutrients.

    It covers me, very comfortably. Right now, I'm cooking asparagus, mushrooms, spinach and black eyed peas (all on sale at Publix, except the dried beans).

    I eat very well on the equivalent of food stamps. I don't drink soda or buy any junk food. I look for sales and mind my nutritional needs. Trader Joes has a great deal on squash the past couple months. I get a huge butternut for $2, spaghetti squash for 2.5 and an acorn for 2.5.

    Whenever Publix has 2 for 1 on pasta and spaghetti sauce, I buy it. I like a handful of kidney beans with the spaghetti sauce on spaghetti squash, but I take the pasta to supplement calorie needs when necessary.

    About once a month, Publix has 2 for 1 on hummus. I like to get that and sandwich fixings with nice bread.

    Of course, I never eat at restaurants, unless a date is paying.


    And all cruelty free.

    Your intentional blindness is a sad statement about helping people understand food and nutritional needs. Healthy food is 'affordable', if you cut out the crap food.

    You would rather let low income people continue to eat crap, not provide them with information regarding nutrition that could change their lives, for what purpose?
